In the middle distance are the turrets of the castle, the spire, the chimneys, and the bridge backed by a sea of almost Mediterranean blue, while, beyond the bay, the familiar headlands recede, tier by tier, to the hazy horizon. In the foreground is a wealth of foliage and a variety of peasant figures.
