A view of the Potomac from the rear yard of the Gunston Hall estate.  In Mason's day, a lot of trading took place along the river, and the trees were all cut down to provide an unobstructed view.  These days, the trees are permitted to grow except for one small section close to the river.  The open area in the foreground was part of a deer park that Mason maintained during his residency.
