Comments much appreciated indeed. Thanks! First of all, the general 
cloudscape is not a media. It is Zeger Knaepen's FastClouds macro which 
I like and use a lot. Only at the right-hand side of the scene, there is 
a media cloud layer added and you hardly distinguish it from the rest. I 
agree about the Sun's altitude but in the end I opted for a higher one. 
Instalment 2 (and maybe 3) might/will probably follow your suggestion, 
but I am not sure about that yet.

Lol. Of course!
