Vertical landscape with a stream cascading down from a valley, forming rapids in the lower left corner. Falling trees stick into the water in a zigzag shape and large rocks redirect the current. Steep slopes rise up to a group of mountains in the distance, surrounded by swirling clouds. The central peak has a "holy" cross formed by snow. There is a deer facing left outside of the main image in the lower left corner.
