In the foreground, a culvert with a pond of standing water, bordered by brown grass. A water-filled ditch with walkways recedes into the distance on the right. A broad expanse of dried brown grass dominates the midground. In the distance, rows of barracks recede into the background before an outline of trees. A watchtower appears at top left.
