"Approaching Asgard" was inspired by a scene from the third installment of Pierce Brown's excellent "Red Rising" trilogy. I won't describe the scene further in case you haven't read it yet. The scene describes one of the main characters approaching a fortress on a "floating mountain".
I like this version more than the night version. I find it easier to see the details and it doesn't seem so bleak.

". . . I'd never seen anyone smile like that. Like he'd found heaven and realized he didn't have to die to go there."
This is not how I pictured the scene, (so bright!) so I didn't recognize it at first, but the path made me think: 'You know what that reminds me of?' I was about to mention it before I read the description, only to find the resemblance was quite intentional!
I really pictured something much more winding and steep. Something cruel gods would build just to see if they could. These slopes are how I saw Olympus only below the clouds.
Then again, maybe the zoomed-out camera, already level with the summit, belies the treachery of the trek experienced by the climber?

Great job capturing a moment that is clearly quite an adventure. It is easy to imagine the feeling of being so exposed and remote with little knowledge of what lies ahead. This image inspires many different possibilities.

I really like the floating Fortress in the sky. Great work.

I really like this one. The black pyramid at the top is intriguing and I think it would make an interesting counterpart to see an image from above the pyramid looking downward with the pyramid much closer. I see the title references Norse Mythology.Very cool. Keep up the great work!
