A woman in rear three-quarter profile turns to admire a rainbow in the sky. Perhaps she is also seeing off the departing ferry, which seens to be mid-stream. There is a later version of this print (see ETM) where the sky block is completely different; there are no clouds, and the rainbow is only suggested with streaks of bokashi.
