The Long Ascent by steve-burg The Long Ascent by steve-burg
This is a 3D render that I modified in Photoshop. The figures were painted on a much larger scale, then reduced and placed in the landscape.

I haven't the slightest idea what this is, but it does not look like a natural formation. I think it's a structure - its origin and purpose unknown.

The image was originally created for a book project, and I added the figures much later. A lot of material didn't make it into the book - but it might find its way here... :)

the way the structure is oriented makes me want to tilt my head, but, that would of course mean that the people are standing at an angle to the axis of gravitation
that confuses me...

It DOES look like a natural formation if you've ever seen a picture of the Giant's Causeway ;)

Nice, the atmosphere is really intense here. Reminds me of the Citadel's walls in Half-Life 2
