  1. 3 – what is revealed is much more dramatic than just “different views of the landscape”; the mirror reveals the landscape that you just passed, it’s like watching a very recent history
    5 – not sure if softens is the right word but good observation
    3 – nothing is said about the existing landscape of this place
