In this atmospheric, wintry landscape we see a woman making her way round the last bend in the road before approaching the village of Moniaive on the other side of the river. It is a quiet, peaceful scene with only her solitary figure on the road. Paterson has created this atmospheric effect by restricting his palette to a few colours which appear at various points throughout the picture, thus creating an overall sense of balance.
