About the Photo:

In this image, the horizon line illustrates the somewhat illusory nature of perception. The horizon line is a highly recognizable and conspicuous feature of the landscape – the apparent dividing line between the earth and the sky – and our primary point of orientation. Yet it is not quite “there” as it seems to be, especially in imagery; we can’t ever reach it or overtake it. In this way, it is at once there and not, present and absent, existing somewhere between this and that, between consciousness and landscape.
