East Islands of Claire by ArthurBlue East Islands of Claire by ArthurBlue
The title was inspired by the song by Planxty, "West Coast of Clare". The meaning of "claire" is bright or light and that was a perfect fit to my motivation for this image.

As usual, this was rendered in Vue. It's not a photo-montage of any sorts.

EDIT: this image has a companion:

I had to look at the PSD file to check because it was a long time ago but no, I didn't. The only post work in this image is some de-saturation and a very subtle glow in some of the highlights. If I'd show you the raw render you'd have trouble telling the two pictures apart as they're nearly identical.

The cloud formation is pure Vue as well. It was made with a mix of two techniques: "limit cloud to zone" (to have clouds only on that central area) and "dissolve near objects" (to make the hole in the middle).
