Despite its title, this work depicts Mounts Bay in Cornwall with St Michael's Mount in the upper left corner. Wallis often compressed distances in his imagery, and this work encompasses both Penzance Harbour on the left of the image and the lighthouse at Lizard Point on the right.

Many of Wallis's paintings were untitled and received speculative titles in subsequent years. Although Wallis received support from both Ben Nicholson and Adrian Stokes following his removal from St Ives to the Penwith District Workhouse in 1941, many of his works were destroyed or dispersed.

'Yacht, Pink and Green' is painted on the opposite side of this work.
