This image of Battery Park and the view to the south, southwest looking down Lake Champlain contains many geologic and human elements. In the foreground, is the park which is covered in snow which makes it clear that it is winter. There is a large tree present in the center of the image whose shadow suggests that the photograph was probably taken around noon. There are two individuals that are sitting or leaning against the stone wall and metal fence at the edge of the park. In the park are two benches and a sign that are on the edge of the path. On the lake there is a lighthouse that is located out on the breakwater which is surrounded by ice. On the far right of the image in the background the silhouettes of the Adirondack Mountains in New York State.
