Clouds in the canyon,
brushing rock faces they have known
for a million years.
Nothing else quite equals Black and White for expressing the cool, dark mysteries of shadows.
To contemplate is to look at shadows. —Victor Hugo
We take it for granted, but prior to geological expeditions that also provided photographic evidence in the late 1800s, descriptions of the Yellowstone country by the few white men who had visited it were generously considered to be myths, tall tales, or else outright lies.
But are not the dreams of poets and the tales of travellers notoriously false?
—H. P. Lovecraft
