Walter J. Phillips wrote 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.”
