Edward Theodor Compton. The Alps, 1906

“I have never seen before, occupied these openings, and gradually became darker in their recesses. Mont Blanc was before us, but it was covered with cloud; its base, furrowed with dreadful gaps, was seen above. Pinnacles of snow intolerably bright, part of the chain connected with Mont Blanc, shone through the clouds at intervals on high. I never knew -I never imagined-what mountains were before. The immensity of these aerial summits excited, when they suddenly burst upon sight, a sentiment of ecstatic wonder, not unallied to madness”, Percy Bysshe Shelley.
