Oh! Sorry. This scene /is/ also the demo scene. Details at the end of 
the file. ;-)

Consider this to be version 1. In the mean time, I have been thinking 
about two improvements. (1) scaling differently the clouds should not be 
done with the Scale parameter as that will unavoidably change also the 
colour of the cloud media. Much better is to do that by scaling the 
density, and rotate the shell afterwards for an interesting view. (2) I 
am not satisfied with the horizon. I think I know how to solve this but 
need a little time. That will be version 2, considering Mick's original 
as version 0.
