I am lazy sometimes - here I started with a transmit value of 0.85 and it ended
as 1 after some trials. For a reason I don't remember I set reflection with
metallic 0.3, so the color isn't completely useless.

That's totally true!

Thank you.

There are only 4 animal types - fishes, lizard, deer and a peregrine falcon.

Many meshes are Daz3D files -

https://www.daz3d.com/stones-and-structures
https://www.daz3d.com/misty-river-gorge

It's much cheaper than my investments in plant collections 20 years before...

Hmmm. That last is an interesting idea I was not aware of. I need to 
investigate those implications (as also the filter influence, when I 
find some time...).

I have done some testing in the past. I shall try to dig them up and 
post them, especially as a showcase for its possibilities. Your river 
bottom is an excellent example indeed.

This reminds me of my childhood on a farm. I spent quite a bit of time swimming
and fishing in the creek. I saw a fairly large snake in the water once which I
was convinced must have been a water moccasin, and that was the last time I swam
in it. Thanks for sharing your beautiful artwork!

Kind regards,

This is awesome.

You said in another reply that the rocks are public models from Daz3D; did they
come with textures too or are those yours? The lichen and weathering on the
rocks in the foreground are very convincing!

I look forward to your next peaceful location :)

But /that/ is paying itself back now in your landscapes. ;-)

Awesome... but I miss a (Eurasian) lynx stalking the deer, perhaps in 
the foreground left! Alpine/boreal forests are just not complete without 
lynxes...

See you in Khyberspace!

Amazing, well done. Povray and you form a fantastic combination.
