A waterfall descends between two mountains; the series of cascades is hinted by the careful placement of intermittent rocks.
Leaf number 3 evokes Wang Wei's poetic line: Sit and watch the clouds rising. Xu Fang's colophon reads: Green are the reeds, the sun not yet set; Tree foliage and mountain colors divide the lake into two halves. A solitary recluse sits upon a flat bluff, Occasionally observing white clouds rising from the mountain tops.
