Description: From the original description: From Karr's, an easy ride of five miles brings us to the mouth of the Seneca, where we find a little trading settlement. But this fact does not interest us at present. On reaching the open ground, all our faculties are at once concentrated on the magnificent object just across the river -- a scene in which all the elements of curiosity, beauty, and sublimity, seem to have been accumulated and combined. Imagine a thin, laminated sheet of rock, half a mile long by five hundred feet broad, set up on edge, the base covered for one-third of the height by a forest-grown talus; its sides ribbed with narrow terraces, moss-carpeted and festooned with gay, flowering shrubs; the bare surfaces stained with varied colors, white, yellow, red, brown, gray, and purple; its upper edge riven, splintered, and carved with a succession of grotesque forms which the pencil alone can describe. On the left the cliff abuts against a wooded mountain, defended, as it were, by a double line of bastioned and embattled walls. On the right it terminates abruptly in a sharp precipice. From the opposing hill juts another towering pile of rock, which forms the narrow gate-way through which appears a long vista of woods and mountains. Now we have the picture sketched in outline; but how shall we describe the varied emotions excited by its diverse forms and ever-changing countenance? When the sun gilds its painted and festooned sides, we glory in its beauty; when a passing cloud veils it in shadows, we are awe-struck by its weird sublimity. Having partially satisfied our emotional appetites, we take a recess, and ride up to Adamson's to dinner. In the afternoon we return, and cross the river on foot by a fording-place so rugged and slippery that we cannot trust our horses to carry us. Up the steep bank, and across a shaded plateau, we enter the gate-way, which is farther from the river than we anticipated. Here we find the inevitable water-power a trickling rill, whose current might be stopped by a thirsty ox, the insignificant author of this tremendous ruin. Turning from the horse path, we clamber up the talus at the base of the right-hand abutment, and, when out of breath, sit down to recover, and look up. We are now directly fronting the perpendicular edge or gable-end of the great cliff. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy !

TURKEY Trebizond on Black Sea - 1887 Wood Engraving

Full star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star small

This old engraving has substantiated and stimulated a recent interest of mine; this physical thing now hangs in front of my reading chair, and I have found the digital copy of the charming old book from which it was cut (VOYAGES AND TRAVELS OR SCENES IN MANY LANDS VOLUME
de Colange, Leo (Ed.)).
Published by E.W. Walker, Boston, MA (1887))
I recommend enjoying some of the 19th century paintings under "Trabzon in art" in commons.wikipedia., which is where I first discovered this one. In some of these it is the artists viewpoint of serious (not ) peacefulness that I especially enjoy, and now this is substantiated, in front of my reading chair.
