The sunset spans the wide canvas and reflects on the ocean and waves, then on the wave wash on the shore in the mid ground, and finally on the wet sand in the foreground. The foamy edge of the wave wash contrasts with the dark wet beach sand in the dusk of the evening, and stretches across the forground. The distant horison is dappled with delicate clouds in shades of burnt purple and orange, and they stretch up into the sky in colours of orange and red. Small on the horison to the left of the canvas the tiny silhouette of a container ship can be seen, and a second ship more dimly to the right of the sunset, steaming over the horison.
