Featured 7/1/11 in The X-Factor
Outstanding Image Award from Glitter, Sparkle and Shine 7/7/11
Featured 7/19/11 in Magic of Mirrored Images

This other-worldly scene reminds me just a bit of our own Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah.

This is my tweak of one of the flames (#12) found in the wonderful Puff N’ Stuff flame pack by dA’s pm-ark that Wolfepaw recently recommended. Supernova added in GIMP along with mirror imaging, with final render in UF.

Created in Apophysis 7X v15. Best if viewed larger.
