In search of the Sublime (8 photos)
by Tim Ward Silver Star Critiquer/Silver Note Writer [C:  W: 0 N: 10] (57)

"The sublime is a feeling provoked by certain kinds of landscape that are very large, very impressive and dangerous. Places like the wide-open oceans, the high mountains, the polar caps. The Sinai Desert, the Grand Canyon. These places do all sorts of things to us. It's interesting that around the end of the 18th century, people started to say that the feeling that these places provoke in us is a recognizable one and universal one -- and a good one." - Alain De Botton
