This photograph was taken from above a small river which runs toward a tall outcropping in the background. This monolithic rock wall is lined with dark vertical streaks of desert varnish. Above the outcropping, which crosses the photograph horizontally, about one-third of a clear sky is seen. Stemming from the bottom middle of the rocky formation is a river. The river winds in an € shape, growing larger in visible size as it encompasses the entire bottom edge of the photograph. To each side of the river, the land is full of small desert shrub brush. A single tall deciduous tree stands to the far left along the middle of the photograph. A small white tent rests on the bank in the distant middle-right of the river. Two dark horses are hitched to a wooden wagon to the right of the campsite. A log crossing the river serves as a makeshift bridge. The numbers 1-20€ are written along the bottom of the photograph.
