Like so many of Dougherty-s paintings, this scene has no human presence. It is pure seascape. As in William Ritschel-s "Afternoon Glow" (MMA collection), the high horizon line and the sweeping compositional presence of the sunlit rocky shore focus attention on the tumultuous waves as they approach the coast.
