As you happen to have found a real life location that looks like one of the fantasy settings I compose for my assorted enchanted ladies, I was, of course, naturally drawn to this when I discovered it!

Whilst the rendering here zooms in a little too close to qualify as one of my fantasy scenes, it's exactly the sort of setting I've spent many hours manufacturing, and it's a source of MUCH delight to discover that someone has found a real location resembling my fantasy forest scenes!

Definitely worth the risks that the artist took to secure the image in my view ... it's the sort of scene that many wish to visit, and many fear may disappear if we are not more careful how we act.

It would be interesting to compare this with a zoomed out view of the same location. Even the zoomed in view here has a primaeval aura about it, and without paying botanical attention to the actual foliage, could be set at any time from the early Carboniferous to the present. It would make an ideal backdrop for anything from giant Carboniferous dragonflies to present day parrots, as well as some of my fantasy figures, and the artist's effort is to be commended even without learning of the risk to life and limb associated with this shot!
What do you think?
