Cloud horizon Charles Piazzi Smyth
Product images of Cloud horizon
Landscape view of the horizon as seen from Mount Guajara. Mountain rock is visible in the foregeound, and a shadowy outline of further cliffside is visible in the background. The mountain range appears to sit above the clouds, and the sky is a mixture of bright yellow, orange, and lilac. Inscribed in ink underneath: 'The cloud horizon Westward from Guajara, showing the summit of Palma above, and the base of Gomera below the cloud.' From the 'Tenerife Papers of Charles Piazzi Smyth', a scrapbook of watercolours and stereo plates from Smyth's 1856 astronomical expedition to a volcanic mountain range in Tenerife.
