I've reset to the season to summertime for this nighttime version of "Goldenwalk". I've been taking lots of walks over the past year or so and have been trying to bring my family along whenever possible. My son Ian prefers to walk at night so we've gone on quite a few "nightwalks" (as he calls them) this summer. Our neighborhood looks quite a bit like this render (when all the fireflies are active). On one particular nightwalk we encountered a cat that followed us almost the entire time. I added him to the scene :-)

"Another Easy "10""
I love it. But I thought the cat had three legs too. ;)

"Back to summer!"
Yes, I have saved off the fall render for later this year, but glad to have a lovely summery one!

The cat made me think of Halloween - all that's needed in this render is some Jack-o-lanterns along the path, a slenderman, or headless horseman and we're back into fall!

"Memories from Illinois"
I lived off a dirt road in southern Illinois for several years. I have many memories of walking down the quiet road, silence broken only by the squeaking of distant pumpjacks, with fireflies blinking away by the hundreds along the trees lining the road. It's one of the things I miss about living in Illinois, and you've captured it perfectly in both your art and the narrative. Great work, Ryan.

"Memory Construction"
Hope the memories you have made from your walks are even more beautiful than this rendering (and it is magnificent!) Thanks!

Bob said what I was thinking. I'm in total agreement.

"Right In My Wheelhouse!"
Have always loved the darker night bluish scenes!

This is my new favorite!

"Magical! "
I love this in every way. I particularly like the fireflies and the cat. (No, it doesn't have three legs; that's just the way it's standing.)

Awesome Potatoes
Wow... turned out way better than I was expecting! And what a nice way to remember the cat. Bravo! :D

"Re: the Cat"
It's an illusion, the cat does have four legs :-)

"One small question"
Looking at the larger renderings, it almost looks like the cat is missing a front leg?
