Just an imaginary place in a nice cold climate for all you northern hemisphere dwellers.
The image is close to what I was first imagining except it changed halfway from a fantasy to a nature image. I wanted to play with Hankster's rock formations and the new Cone-shaped Conifer and get the wintery rock textures... so this is it :D
I started this with GI but went back to no special lighting except for soft shadow. It was much more of the effect I was after.
There are now many pines in the image. The front ones are all individually placed but the center and back ones are ecosystems. The buildings are also ecosystems except for the main one placed.
The final specs come out as 9,545,037,770 polygons. The render took about 2 hours at 1600 pixels across and then reduced. Not too long as the lighting is not too complicated.
Thanks for viewing and hope you enjoy it.

Great work.......... totally realistic and cleanly lit landscape.......... I must say though, I think the mammals let the piece down...... Thet do add another focus to the image and develop the story of the image but the textures seem more artificial than those of the landscale and therefore look a little out of place.......... great work........
