This tent-like landscape reminds me of the Costa Rican volcano in Arenal which also looks as if a volcanic shake could make the coating of forest slide down like a crow surfing down a steel hand-rail.

‘Here the landscape … shook itself, heaped itself, let all this encumbrance of houses, castles, and woods slide off its tent-shaped sides.  …  The tent-like landscape collapsed and fell.’
