An image loosely inspired by C.J. Cherryh's trilogy The Faded Sun.

In total, three different height_fields have been used. The central 
height_field (with the peak) itself consists of a union of three copies, 
each scaled differently along the y-axis, in order to show more 
differentiation in the different levels, especially the peaks and the 
sub-horizontal surfaces.

Proximity patterns used for the landscape textures.

Nice! I especially like the foreground darker landscape and its rocks.

I *still* haven't tried using a proximity pattern; it's on my (long) to-do list.

Makes it a good dry parched land, yet hinting at water someplace.

As with most pictures posted here I look at least twice, which is why I noticed
the lizard the 2nd time. At least I'm guessing that's a lizard. The avian flock
was taking all my attention away from it.

Have you seen the film 'Turner', about the famous painter? There is a 
scene where Turner shows his "Hannibal crossing the Alps" to a visitor 
and his father asks the visitor: "Have you seen the elephant?"

I use Edouard Poor's method as one of the more comprehensible.

I forgot to add that this effect is for the most part the result of the 
atmospheric media applied, as the landscape textures are very similar to 
each other.
