A single anonymous figure in the foreground whose back is to us, strides across a grassy landscape dressed in khaki shorts and saddle shoes and in the lower left corner is a red basket. Late afternoon shadows fall across the grassy green background that turns into a band of sun-bleached grass before meeting the dusty pale blue of the sky. The waning light creates dramatic shadows and silhouettes of the single tree and shrub in the distance.
