In this painting a fishing boat filled with people is travelling towards a cluster of large rocks. The danger of this shoreline is demonstrated by the small ship sinking in the centre right. In the foreground another ship has succumbed to this peril recently: detritus floats in the sea and survivors are gripping onto its masts which are still visible above the water. On the right, in the foreground, several survivors have reached the safety of land.
