View of a sycamore tree, also called a buttonwood, growing beside the Deerfield River. Two men stand beneath the leafy branches next to two horses hitched to a cart. Utility poles and power lines run along the river bank behind them, and a narrow dirt foot path runs along the field in the foreground.
