Sky over DePape
"...the sky is for all;bright as it is, it is "not too bright, nor good, for human nature's daily food", it is fitted in all its functions for the perpetual comfort and exalting of the heart, for the soothing it and purifying it from its dross and dust. Sometimes gentle, sometimes capricious, sometimes awful, never the same for two moments together; almost human in its passions, almost spiritual in its tenderness, almost divine in its infinity, it is surely meant as the chief teacher for what is immortal in us".

John Ruskin, "Of The Open Sky" Modern Painters I, Part II, Section III
