It's a photo. You can tell by some artifacts and stuff that would not be in a CG render. Probably dirt on the camera but the cloud is actually too complex in structure to be CG.

I must admit that I am the type of sad person who finds himself looking at a beautiful sunset and thinking "hmm, what do you reckon, increased red decay, and I wonder what I'd have to do to a power fractal shader to get those clouds like that...?" or "those displaced patches of heather or gorse or whatever... over there on the hillside, I wonder if you could use the deep snow clip for that but change the colour and add a bit of displacement to the top layer?"


Thats how sad I am....  :'(

I find that it has given me a new appreciation of some of the simpler and more mundane things I see. I can sort of, "pick out," ways of generating those. The really spectacular stuff is so far beyond my cg capabilities that I can just relax and enjoy them. I really sympathize with the guy stopping to take pictures of rocks. I turned a 45 minute drive to the coast into a two hour ordeal for my family... then it started to rain... hard.

efflux, where exactly is this taken from? I'm living in Keswick at the moment...

It's very near Keswick. It's taken from the top of Scar Hill. You can walk along Scar Crags to get there. There are very good views from there.

Here are more shots:

A ha, I recognise Robinson in the middle of these two pics. I see that from my window :)

I think you mean Crag Hill? I've never been up there - maybe this weekend if the weather eases...

Yes, I think you are right. It's Crag Hill.

Why are you in the Lake District?

The weather here is fine. I live in Carlisle but when it's OK here the Lake District can still be much worse. It's the wettest place in the country.

Perhaps the same reason you like to photograph it? ;)  Anyhow, when the weather's bad elsewhere in the country it's often gorgeous here.

Yes, the Lake District is a beautiful place but I think the locals here do not appreciate this. I originally came from Northern Ireland and have lived elsewhere as well so I don't take it for granted.

It's a very expensive area to buy a house in though.

There is a guy called tommorules on Renderosity who takes stunning pictures of the Lake District. This is an example. There are lots in his gallery.
