A winter cityscape. A road filled with cars with illuminated red tail lights leads from the foreground on the right into the background at the middle of the image. The road is lined with tall, bare trees and there is a row of houses along the left, each with a set of stairs down to a walkway, a driveway and a small snow-covered yard. Two figures are walking in the foreground. The sky in the background is a warm purple and yellow colour.
