A young boy peeks out a window perhaps viewing the two people struggling through the rain.
Over this vista, the diagonal sweeps of the storm—the bands of wind and rain that conceal the land and stir up the river while bending all the vegetation—intensify its unstoppable momentum. Beneath the blur of nature’s fury are buildings and pavilions, or human settlements that remain peaceful and unaffected. This is not a depiction of a catastrophe, but rather an appreciation of nature’s awesome power.
