large cumulus clouds appear as powerful as an avalanche; the two tiny dark specks in lower foreground are birds which appear to add scale to the enormity of the clouds

“You shall live lifted up in light,
You shall move among clouds
You shall see storms arise and drenched and deafened
Shall exult in them.
You shall top a rise and behold creation.
And you shall need the tongues of angels
To tell what you have seen.”
- Nancy Newhall/“This Is The American Earth”
