Another iteration on the same gorge, inspired by M.C. Escher's lithograph "Town in Southern Italy", 1930.
Adding more and more detail around the gorge, and a new POV to bring it all "in". It's getting onerous - now 162MB and Bryce needs a 400MB partition to open the file. Probably 50% of the detail is out of view in this image. Still, most enjoyable modeling! [ed: Except the imported arch blocks I made in Carrara, it's 100% Bryce (priimitives, most multi-replicated, for example the stairs).]
Thanks for the views, and your comments as always!

Beautifull picture, but one comment, the bridge in front, its texturing is to regular.

Not only your technical wizardy and texturing are breathtaking, but the lighting really brings life to the overall image. My hat's off to you.

Jim, this is simply amazing. The structure is so complex, and yet so easy to see... beautiful POV and a great tribute to MCEscher. Plus, top-level ligthing and materials. For me, it's Hot20.

This is an amazing piece of work. The detail is fantastic, as well as the modeling, lighting, texturing, and well, everything else. A wonderful piece all round.

You have my vote for your patience alone in modeling all of the objects. I think the POV is perfect and your lighting brings out the textures.
