Finely painted with many Guangzhou authority war junks, distinguishable by their red eyebrows and black bulwarks, in the foreground, left middle ground, and left background; they fly red flags, some of which bear illegible black characters. Along the coast in the right background are pirate vessels. In the pass, two war junks are attacking several of the pirate vessels, and assault parties have been launched in smaller boats. Some of the pirates are fleeing the vessels in the cove and escaping up the hill. The action takes place on a calm sea either early or late in the day, with a low sun through the clouds; the cloud pattern is fairly typical of an autumn or winter morning sky in Guangdong province.
