Phillips writes about this stunning print, I looked up Howe Sound on a grey day and saw blue-grey mountains one behind the other in receding planes each clearly differentiated. The next day the sun shone the mountains, all save the nearest, appeared to lie on one plane, and the whole mass formed a silhouette of pale blue. They are never the same.
