Moonlit view of Caernarvon Castle seen across a stretch of water from the near shore. In the left foreground, growing on the banks of the shore, are trees silhouetted against the light cast by the moon; walking close to the water's edge is a single figure resting his hand on the hindquarters of a pack pony; branches and the trunks of trees have been washed up along the waterline. The stretch of water is calm, with light caught on the surface of the ripples highlighted.
