I discovered that when I removed the ridges from "Rolling Ridges", the result is a pretty cool cloudscape all on its own. Perhaps it should go in the Pickle Jar, but I thought it looked nice enough to feature in the gallery. What do you think?
I have a thing for clouds, so one already has a leg up in my book. Love the lighting and feel. Could picture being on a plane, mesmerized watching this outside my window.

This creation takes one beyond the boundaries of reality to the realms of imagination. Nice work.

If this makes it to the Pickle Jar, I would still look for it. This would be a great image for a lost boy and his companions, if you know what I mean.

I really like how this looks! Very nice job!

I like it a lot! (in my best Forrest Gump voice)

While I agree with the others - my very minor quibble is with the moon....it's too bright and not much visible detail. I'm not saying it should be our moon, I'm just pointing out I'm used to seeing other worldly details that make it spark the imagination more. Other than that, I'm grabbing a dual screen copy for my home setup and one for my phone. I love your work - keep it up! :)

This is the sky I see in my dreams when my dreams are heavenly and good. This is such a gorgeous rendering; so simple, yet it says so much without having to utter a single word. Very nice, Mr. Bliss. You are God's Best!

Gorgeous! My favourite of this series so I'm eagerly awaiting the dual screen version.

If I were a pilot I think this scene would be very familiar to me(assuming I was on a planet with a huge moon!).
"Oh Yeah !"

I totally agree with Big Dave below. Ryan, you're surpassing yourself ;-)
Mon February 27, 2017 at 8:43 pm
I just abosolutely LOVE this. I think it depicts the PERFECT version of a Full moon surrounded by rolling groups of clouds. I am just blown away at how beautiful this render is. Ryan, your stuff is, as always AWESOME. You out-do yourself every time.
Mon February 27, 2017 at 7:12 pm
Just like the view over the wings...
"Awesome! Can't wait for Multi-screen"
Mon February 27, 2017 at 4:13 pm
I think I almost like this even better than Rolling Ridges and I like Rolling Ridges!
Mon February 27, 2017 at 12:40 pm
Ryan, you're like butter... you're on a roll. I love the "rolling" series you're doing right now.
"Good for the Gallery"
Mon February 27, 2017 at 12:29 pm
How about some more exotic bodies in the sky?
Mon February 27, 2017 at 10:12 am
Definitely belongs in the gallery in its own right.
Mon February 27, 2017 at 8:47 am
Wow, beautiful colours, amazing effects, a real winner! Love it!
"Wow Very cool!"
Mon February 27, 2017 at 7:32 am
I love this one... it has a mellow vibe!
I would vote for it as a permanent addition to the Gallery!
Mon February 27, 2017 at 6:50 am
I love this one especially good, but it just leaves me wanting more! Not just multi-screen. I'd like to see something like this with red thunderheads on both sides and lighting, and 4 moons in the sky...basically a Jovian cloud-scape! Or massive rings and storms like a Saturn cloud-scape. :-D
Mon February 27, 2017 at 6:33 am
I love it, it's perfect blend of Moon light with the Clouds. Awesome Render. Thankyou
Mon February 27, 2017 at 4:49 am
Side by side on dual screens Rolling Ridges and Moonbeam Seas both look wonderful.
However, I'd agree Bastian, to be truly perfect, the moon needs a little more definition between the light and the darker grey Lunar Seas.

I really really like this!! Thanks for another great render, Ryan!!
Mon February 27, 2017 at 1:44 am
I love it - but to be perfect, I think the Moon should have a bit more texture - I love the moon in Rolling Ridges
Mon February 27, 2017 at 1:28 am
It reminded me of when I would be walking home, on winter nights, after high school basketball games. The moon would be turning the snow that cool shade of blue and the clouds would appear to have a silver lining then. This is what I enjoyed about those walks.
Mon February 27, 2017 at 1:06 am
Very peaceful and calm and I must admit that I like it much better than Rolling Ridges. The lighting is spot on. I can feel myself floating.
More like this please.

Have to love those midnight clouds and the lighting of this piece. Well done!

Always love your moonlight images and this one is right up there with your best. A perfect 10 from me.

I love what you've done here, especially that the gradients don't have much banding. The lighting bouncing off the far clouds, is amazing. The contrast of shadow and highlights is superb. The scene, though, is what makes the shot epic. You were right to remove the range - simplicity is gorgeous! Thank you!
"Love it so much!!!"
Sun February 26, 2017 at 5:36 pm
It's so beautiful. I can definitely see this as a framed art in my future apartment. This might be my favorite wallpaper yet :D
Sun February 26, 2017 at 5:21 pm
This is everything I hoped it would be when I read the title. Gorgeous!
"Back to simplicity"
Sun February 26, 2017 at 4:30 pm
This is a great example of a piece that would be a bit too minimal as a standalone artwork but is really wonderful as a background. It's got just the right amount of detail and uses a really minimal palette that works well on a transparent desktop but hints at more depth and detail.
Sun February 26, 2017 at 4:19 pm
Beautiful, simply beautiful. It makes me think of the Van Morrison song Moondance.
Sun February 26, 2017 at 4:14 pm
perfect amount of moonlight
Sun February 26, 2017 at 1:26 pm
Wow.. that's about all this one evokes. It's so pretty.
"Another Perfect 10!!!"
Sun February 26, 2017 at 12:45 pm
You hit another one out of the park on this one Ryan. Great Job!!!
