Coast Scene, Marin County', 1872. Colony of seabirds on a rocky outcrop on the shore of the Pacific Ocean, California, USA. 'For the lover of natural scenery, these enormous, isolated rocks have a grand fascination, to which the birds contribute nothing. The grayish tones of the upper part, melting into the deepest brown, with the glowing white of the summit produced by guano, and the broad yellow of the withered grasses, delight the . Artistic eye'. From "Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In, A Delineation by Pen and Pencil of the Mountains, Rivers, Lakes...with Illustrations on Steel and Wood by Eminent American . Artists" Vol. I, edited by William Cullen Bryant. [D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1872]. Artist Andrew Varick Stout Anthony. (Photo by The Print Collector/Heritage Images via Getty Images)
