The events happening in Europe at time being are so emotionally exhausting, that I had to take a break of it. So I went for a walk on the country side to a place near my village through blooming rapeseed fields and blooming cherry trees. I sat down on a bench and enjoyed the sun, the birds and all the flowers and the fresh green all around. Then a stranger came with her dog and asked me, if she might have a seat on the bench as well, which I confirmed. She then went to the nearby fountain to get fresh water for her dog before she sat down on the bench. Her dog sniffed intensively on my leg and I assumed, that he smelled my cats, which always rub their head on my legs. And so we had a talk about pets, the life and what they might mean in our personal life. No words about this war raging in Ukraine, no words about a possibly ill minded Russian president who might start throwing nukes, it was just about life here and now, and it was good to change the focus once in a while.
So I thought I reflect this in today's render. Harper just was on a bike ride through the countryside when she saw these beautiful cherry trees and decided to have a little pause in the shadows of the trees.
The Landscape is made with "UltraScenery" from HowieFarkes (one of the most talented creator of 3D Landscapes in Carrara and DAZ3d). I really struggled a long time with Ultra Scenery despite my relatively "up to date" Computer Rig. DAZ would always crash, or the Rendering would never really start, which was pretty annoying and disappointing. Then "Catweazle" kindly gave me some tips in one of his image comments (see "www.renderosity.com/gallery/items/3055088/a-little-sea-in-the-woods", which I tried and - Tadaaaa - it worked!!! (Thanks Dude for your help - that's awesome!)
The border stone in the foreground was made by my self. On one of my walks I encountered this old border stone some where in the forrest. I took my mobile phone and took a few photos of it from different Angles (about 80-90) and processed them with "Meshroom" a free tool to do "photo grammetry", which does it all by it self (see first Screenshot). So in the end I got a hires mesh of it and the surroundings. With Blender I cut the scene to the bare stone and with "MeshLab" (another cool free tool) I reduced the size of the mesh (I know, I could have done this possibly in Blender too, but since I didn't know yet how to do it, I did it in MeshLab See second Screenshot).
All pure IRAY Render without Postwork (except for the Logo)
Zooming in is very much recommended for details (the full Picture is 6000px in width)
