Dated 1627, this work was painted around the time Lucas van Uden entered the Antwerp Guild. Like many of van Uden's landscapes, this painting seems to have been composed from the artist's imagination. The extreme contrasts of light and dark in the extensive landscape are explained by the dramatic weather conditions and a bright rainbow is visible on the horizon. Tiny details, such as birds, are meticulously rendered. The animated figures are attributed to David Teniers; a pentimento of a striding man is evident to the naked eye. Several lines visible in the centre of the work could possibly be underdrawing.
