This is the first of three instalments under the general title "the 
Shallows". The second instalment still needs a final render after some 
more tinkering. The third one has not yet been started. Render time was 
particularly long: I estimate about some 48 hours in total. I always 
render in sections divided over several render sessions and this time 
the complete process took several weeks. Slowest was the middle section 
(the background) and fastest was the sky. Render speed was more often 
expressed in ppm than in pps.

There are several media: part of the clouds over the Giant; the water; 
the background trees; the slightly hazy atmosphere.

Inspiration came from two sources: https://silenceofthetides.com and a 
reference to Francisco Goya's painting "The Giant".

Objects from Friedrich Lohmueller were gratefully used: the railway 
tracks and wheels, and the houses on the background.
