Title

Dover Plains, Dutchess County, New York

Description

We look down upon the lush valley formed by Ten Mile River. Although there are a few indirect signs of human habitation, the overall effect is pastoral. Forests blend pleasingly with grassy pastures; flocks of sheep and cattle can be seen grazing near plentiful water. In the foreground a group of three has climbed to a promontory. Two seem focused upon navigating shadowy rocks. The other looks out into the distance, illuminated in a ray of sunlight.
