Triple stacked terrain with materials from the Hi-Res Terrain sets 1 and 2, the fog from the Inclement Weather Set and the sky from the HDRI Enhanced Skies Set (all available at Daz). Ambient light by the MorningClouds HDRI, the key light from the sun. The fog in the vales slowly dissolves as the sun rises.
I could never produce a terrain like this. EVER! Looks completely natural, beyond the usual Bryce offerings which is saying a lot!! Fractal magic. Full marks!!

Thank you Rashad. Well, the terrain itself was made in World Creator, exported as 8192x8192 32-bit floating point TIFF, converted to 96-bit TIFF, processed and then reduced to 4096 x 4096 16-bit grey. Again reduced to 2048 and 1024 terrains and stacked so that different materials could be used.
