The Unveiling

The Unveiling

It’s difficult to fathom the forces that would push this dramatic peak skyward. That wasn’t the end of the drama though. Time, combined with both frozen and liquid water, join forces to create something beautiful as they slowly whittle away at the stone pinnacles. They are very patient artists, these two. I love the way the clouds are obscuring much of the scene here, sort of like we’re witnessing the unveiling of a new art installation as the artist pulls back the tapestry in a sweeping flourish. There are no galleries created by human hands as grand as this one though. Humans can only attempt to capture a fragment of the beauty found here. It certainly does inspire us to try.
