Just having some fun with this one! :D

This is a composite of two images I took a month ago with my Nikon D850. First the cloud image as I thought it looked like some sort of 'cloud-being'. I took a photo of the same mountains in the foreground with a longer focal length several days later. Utilizing the 'Sky Replacement' feature in Photoshop I was quite happy with how it came out (and how fast!). Afterwards, I did some contrast/saturation adjustments and came up with "Realm of the Cloudwalker".

What an imagination you have! I love the somewhat ghostly cloud figure appearing over the mountains. I think it will get cold "feet". :). Great fun. I enjoyed your "Pareidolia" site too- a new word for me-something I'm always doing-I see things in the oddest places, like a pattern in a rug....
So I can't decide if this "figure" is happily embracing the scene, or perhaps posing a bit of a threat. I prefer the former- it is a bit rabbit-like in my mind. :)

+1   Fabulous imagination Neil.  For me, the cloud is fresh out of Spider Man.... Spooky and threatening... Superb work.
Make your life spectacular!

I definitely see a giant 'Wererabbit' looming over the mountain, Neil! Deceptively cuddly, but certainly menacing...... Just looking at the scene as a landscape, I see an erupting volcano spewing its clouds of ash over the surrounding mountain tops. Inside your imagination must be a wonderful place to be!

At first I wondered why you put the photo here - then I read your story. As soon as I did I immediate saw the walker. Super cool idea and execution! Something to be looked at again and again. Love the imagination here.
