In this image, a man, standing in the bottom right of the plate, steers a flat-bottomed punt boat down a waterway. He holds a long oar in both hands, and looks beyond the image area while smoking a pipe. The positioning of his hands and the weight of his stance indicates that he is in mid-row. The waterway curves up and to the right behind him. On the other side are tall trees, hills, and some houses clustered together on the left.
