This painting is typical of the Italianate landscapes painted by Hackaert. The figures are probably by Jan Lingelbach. In the foreground, to the right of a group of tall trees, a group of peasants converse at the side of a river; a man in a red cap, seated on a mule with a fishing rod over his shoulder, a woman pointing with her left arm to the opposite river bank and a man in yellow and red seated on the bank with a pack on his back and a fishing rod. In front of them, another man has waded out into the river a little way. A dog sniffs the ground beside the man on the mule. Across the river, there is a low waterfall on the right and an outcrop of white rock, on top of which a cluster of trees is growing. To the left of the rock, a couple of men are logging on the river.
