Hills, Bitterwater Valley, Gabilar Rouge, California
In the foreground there is a horizontal white fence. Behind that are two mountains that overlap eachother in the center of the image and a larger mountain in the back that is in between the two. The mountain in the back is darker because of the cloud cover above.
An open public space dominates the foreground of the image. In that space are several groups of children, particularly at the lower left of the image, a rooster at the lower right, and a water pump at the far side of the square just before the fence. Beyond is a street that receeds into the distance; on either side of the street are picturesque older buildings that face onto the square with banks of windows, overhangs, and steeply pitched rooflines.
