In 1878, Monet relocated to Vétheuil with his family, where they shared a rented house with Ernest Hoschede and his family, who had faced bankruptcy that year. Monet's time in Vétheuil was challenging, marked by financial difficulties and the death of his wife in September 1879, shortly after giving birth to their son Michel. During the subsequent winter, while still residing with the Hoschedes, Monet painted a series of striking yet somber images of ice floes on the Seine, possibly reflecting his internal sadness.

This particular painting was created in early 1880 and explores the impact of light on a road leading to Vétheuil, visible in the distance. Utilizing a characteristically restrained color palette, Monet captures the essence of a crisp, chilly morning, with the pale, clear light washing out the landscape's colors and casting elongated blue shadows from the trees on the right (which are not depicted in the image). The same blue hue appears in the mist hovering above the town.

The composition, though seemingly straightforward, is quite ingenious. Four rough triangles occupy the foreground from left to right, descending the bank towards the road below. These triangles loosely converge on Vétheuil, guiding the viewer's gaze from the quiet, open road to the bustling human settlement beyond. The patchy blue horizontal shadows across the road provide a strong counterbalance to the sky's band, which is softened by the gentle curves of the hillsides and a tree intruding from the right.
