Nothing too fancy here. Trying to create a sense of "land waves" receding to the horizon (and work on my cloud techniques). Also wanted to do a Vue landscape that could render in under 12 hours at 6K :-)
Hope you enjoy it!
Just wondering how difficult it would be to make a winter render of this? Which is kind of odd for me, as usually I can't wait for winter to be over... Ooh, and maybe a night version of that as well.

I like the daytime view over the blue sky variant, that magical golden light is what wins me over.

I love this version, and actually prefer it to the ochre-toned original. Blues and greens are my favorite backgrounds of yours and this one is really nice and peaceful.

I actually like the pickle jar version with the blue sky best. I reminds me of the view from the light airplane as I flew over the foot hills of the Oregon Coast range.

Actually I like the streaks in the clouds. Walking in the Michigan forests and looking west over Lake Michigan (when the world was less politically correct); we'd call those "God rays".

incredible atmosphere and mood.

This is so right, it captures reality as I have seen it many times. The clouds are really the best part, spot on. My only thought is a color related one, it could be a little more colorful...but I nitpick.

Some night and moonlight scenes would be nice pickle jar versions.

Very nice picture, reminds me of Northern California. Only problem is the streaking in the bottom right. The light rays through the trees don't look quite natural.

Very very very nice - 10/10 with me.

It is like a cross between Heliocentric and Shanshui.

This one is simply lovely, reminds me of the cloud forests of Costa Rica where we live in the winter time. Again another very stunning Landscape

"Nice, Needs a night version"

I really like the rolling hills. I'd love a night version as I prefer darker wallpapers.
