A cloud filled sky takes up half the painting with a muted mountain silhouette taking up another third of the image. A handful of small cottages are visible in the distance standing out against the dark of the distant mountain. The painting is surrounded by a white border with its name and painter at bottom centre.

This unusually large painting by Henry records the view eastwards from the quay on the Clifden road, just over a kilometre west of Letterfrack, County Galway. The cluster of diminutive, white-washed cottages, picked out by sunlight against a backdrop of mountains and an impressive sky, is a motif that recurs in Henry's landscape painting from the early 1920's onwards. These cottages emphasis the grandeur of the local scenery while alluding to rural communities isolation and reliance on the land.
