Besides using adjectives to portray the way nature looks, Steinbeck also uses them in metaphors to present it as alive and moving: “to the strong and rocky Gabilan Mountains” Even though he uses two rather forceful words to describe the Mountains, neither of the words are negative or too harsh. Instead of saying ‘jagged and rocky’ or ‘sturdy and rocky’ he chose the word “strong”, a word that usually illustrates a person – thus redirects us to the direction of living. He also says, “The water is warm too, for it has slipped twinkling over the yellow sands”. In this quote there is not only a metaphor, but also another of Steinbeck’s techniques – contrast. “Slipped” is a clumsy action; however “twinkling” is glamorous and graceful.
Air which is in contact with slopes that are warmed expands upward and cool and sinks over neighbouring valleys Katabatic (downslope) winds occur over slopes which are cooled. Katabatic winds occur where air in contact with sloping ground is colder than air at the same level away from the hillside over the valley. Katabatic winds are nocturnal phenomena in most parts of the world (i.e. they tend to happen at night) as there is surface cooling, especially when there is little cloud and due to lack of heating by the sun. Katabatic winds may lead to the formation of frost, mist and fog in valleys.
The high temperatures during the day causes the rock to expand and with lack of clouds heat radiates away at night causing cold temperatures. This causes the rock to contract. The diurnal range weakens the rock and causes stresses. Continuous exfoliation breaks the rock apart and the outer layer is peeled away. c) Describe and suggest reasons for the formation of the landforms shown in Figure 5.
Momaday and Brown have different purposes toward their respective landscapes as seen in the passages. Momaday’s purpose holds to view culture history of the Kiowa Indians and how the land itself holds beauty, in a most appealing positive attitude, which also reflects his background; “for my people.” Brown’s purpose, seen in the passage holds an opposite view, where it reflects a very dull aspect towards the Plains in a demoralized negative way. Momaday’s fanciful diction keeps his praise for Rainy Mountain alive with imagination choosing words such as “brittle” and “writhe,” giving a sensory image of how he feels and sees devotion of pride for the land. Momaday uses sources from his culture and the Kiowa to show a sense of clear imagination of the kind of heritage the land holds. He describes Rainy Mountain using his sensory imagination of how he feels and sees the landscape; colors in specific, making the audience have an idea of how it’s like when he mentions, “The grass turns brittle and brown… cracks beneath your feet.” He compares the many flashy insects as “yellow grasshoppers … everywhere… popping up like corn to sting the flesh…,” seeing the land with praise as to his culture of the Kiowas being reverent.
Anthony Sengsack Feighner Geology 1 28 October 2012 Mount Diablo is a mountain in Contra Costa County, California in the San Francisco Bay Area, located south of Clayton and northeast of Danville. It has an isolated upthrust peak of 3,864 feet (1,178 m), visible from most of the San Francisco Bay Area and much of northern California. Mount Diablo appears from many angles to be a double pyramid and includes many subsidiary peaks, the largest and closest of which is the other half of the double pyramid, North Peak, nearly as high in elevation at 3,557 feet (1,084m) and about one mile northeast of the main summit. Mount Diablo is sacred to many California Native American peoples, according to Miwok mythology and Ohlone mythology, it was
Wegener's theory also provided an alternate explanation for the formation of mountains (orogenesis). The theory being discussed during his time was the "Contraction theory" which suggested that the planet was once a molten ball and in the process of cooling the surface cracked and folded up on itself. The big problem with this idea was that all mountain ranges should be approximately the same age, and this was known not to be true. Wegener's explanation was that as the continents moved, the leading edge of the continent would encounter resistance and thus compress and fold upwards forming mountains near the leading edges of the drifting continents. The Sierra Nevada Mountains on the Pacific coast of North America and the Andes on the coast of South America were cited.
Soldiers beyond the bounds of the focal point are repetitive, having no significant difference between their stature. Being expendable as a characteristic of each soldier could be the intent of Benton’s illustration. Accordingly, the focal point’s face captures the attention of the viewer as a result of not only size, but also in the view of the significant details of his face and gear. In regard to how the color affects the mood, the painting contains warm and cool colors. The glowing orange rails represent an emotional comfort zone or the familiar and warm feeling of home before departure to cold and foreign lands.
You can't imagine anything bad happening in a place as beautiful as this. You don't have to use warm colours to show a beautiful place as there is a stark contrast between Jamaica and Canada where the second half of the film is set. But Canada is also a beautiful setting although there is a different feel to it. It's not the same as the warm happy go lucky feel of Jamaica. But a harsh cold feeling, that's very sharp.
On Map 1, label each area as high elevation, middle elevation, or low elevation. Lightly shade each area using the following color key: High Elevation = red Middle Elevation = yellow Low Elevation = green 3. Name one example of a landscape region of high, medium, and low elevation in New York State. High: Medium: Low: Procedure A Questions: Compare the “Generalized Bedrock Geology of New York State” map in the Appendix with your complete Map 1 and answer the following questions. 1.
This was beneficial for them, because the climate prevented the spread of life-threatening diseases; however, severe and freezing winters killed and weakened many New England colonists. The New England colony lands’ mainly consisted of hills and rocky soil. The Middle colonies had milder temperatures than the New England colonies, although, it was somewhat colder than the South colonies. This weather made for perfect farming conditions. The land here was more fertile and was perfect for farming.
