Early Morning on South Beach Staten Island


Early morning scene on the shore of South Beach, Staten Island.  Man with cattle is central.  The sun is breaking out from the clouds.  The  herdsman is on horseback followed by a small dog.  There are  four sailboats on the distant horizon.  There are seven cattle (one black, two white, and four brown).  There are various weeds and peices of drift wood along the shore of the beach.
