Frederick Edwin Church, Cotopaxi (1855)

This picture reminds me of my experience at JH Ranch climbing Mt Shasta.

the painting  has the mountain centered and has its horizon line very noticeable.  the color palate is very dulled almost pastel colors. the size of the mountain is not overbearing with is size and placement. the ground below the mountain is shadowy, perceiving that their are clouds above.
