The trees lean over the creek and their reflections are depicted in the water. A tree with tall grass is in the right foreground. The creek fills the remaining foreground and the center of the image. In the background, there is a small hill. In the lower left corner, the artist's initials are printed: CWH. Below the edges of the engraving, the artist has signed the print in pencil, "C. Winston Haberer," and has titled the print in the lower left corner "25/76 On Goose Creek."
