Wow is a word I hardly use, but I'm using it for this one, beautiful!

Thank you both, I'm glad you liked it.

I actually rendered it twice, and both versions took about 140 hours each. The first didn't have enough 'snow' cover in the foreground and just looked rough. I'm still not getting the results I want, but I'll share my progress.

I love the way the mist in the foreground casts a shadow -- that gives it extra depth. It gives the impression of slowly floating away to the right. (Why do I assume it's the right? Is it because the clouds have tails?)

Great work, and I'm looking forward to the next one.

The fog and trees are wonderful...the whole image is other-worldly, like Shangri-La.

Thanks again, everyone.

If it gives you a good feeling and takes you somewhere else, then I got the results I was trying for.

Absolutely amazing!
It's extremely life like, but a little bit surreal at the same time! Could easily imagine this as fantasy fiction book cover/poster, etc.

Thank you very much Pat and MJ.

I'm happy you liked it. I can't paint or draw, so this is my shtick for now.
