Scene depicting a party of falconers gathered outside the gates of a chateau. In the foreground to the left, a man sits on his horse, waiting for the remaining members of the party to mount their horses; he has two gun dogs sat beside him. To his right, a number of men and women prepare to leave, with servants providing assistance. At the gates of the chateau, a stationary carriage with footmen waits for the party. Walking away in the distance, falconers lead their horses with gun dogs at the rear. Mountains line the horizon and lush green trees surround the scene.
