Fishing boats in a choppy sea
A variety of shipping is shown on a rough sea. In the centre a fishing boat, or herring buss used for catching herring, moves through the waves. In the foreground to the right, a coastal craft, probably a river barge, is shown with its leeboard visible. There is a larger vessel in the distance on the left, which is either a merchantman or a man-of-war. Two thirds of the painting consists of sky, and the inclusion of dark clouds suggests the ships have been caught in a sudden squall.
