I started out on this one meaning to revisit one of my “classic” projects but as things progressed it turned into something new. This is one of those scenes where it’s tempting to put a figure looking out over the valley, but instead I decided to leave a space for you to imagine yourself and hopefully the flowers will provide the scale 🙂
Lifer for years, but I have been away for a while. Stopped by today to catch up. I like this one. 🙂
This is simply beautiful, love the detail, its perfect, this one and the Night Version.

I love your background pieces. This one “spoke to me” – and so I’ve changed some backgrounds (Zoom and desktop) to enjoy it. Thank you.
Things like this happen when you get used to seeing brilliance from an artist like Ryan. After he had seen Greenvale as my FB background, an old schoolmate of mine asked me…”Where?” I replied, “In someone’s mind”. I then proceeded to give him directions to the master’s website.

I give the foreground an A+ and the sky a B+. The center part of the valley doesn’t look real on my monitor. In my opinion, Ryan, the valley should be clear and sharp like the foreground unless the valley is being covered by a morning mist or a fog. I’m pleased you left out a figure and let us imagine looking out over the valley between the two trees. I’ve had similar views at the Grand Canyon.
This is a very colorful piece and really brings my 4k monitor to life! It is on par with Hinterland which I was using previously. So far these two are my favorite. I used the lossless master to make a 4k version and saved as an optimized PNG. Looks good so far! Thanks for the great wallpaper. Happy to be a lifetime supporter!
Love the scale and serenity of this, definitely works without a figure. Another exceptional piece in the collection, and ranking in my favorites, thank you so much!
This one is great and reminds me of Highland Spring. Are there any plans to do alternate seasons and/or times of day for this one?

Hey Ryan: this is one of the best ones ever that I’ve seen from you. It’s is really calming, something much appreciated during these turbulent times. Excellent work; simply excellent.
This is very much reminiscent of a valley in Lord of the Rings. I can see a band of hobbits and a grey wizard wandering through…
I love this! I can just imagine myself on this precipice overlooking this grandiose and majestic view. Very well done, if I had to give a bit of critique, the cliffs in the middle distance to the left of the view look odd, maybe that is just me though.
Some of your best work with this one!
Thank you !
You are getting better at these landscapes sir. This got a much deserved “Wow” when I saw it. I don’t give rave reviews lightly either.
Wow Ryan this is absolutely stunning and so beautiful and calming. It makes me wish I was sitting there enjoying the view. It looks very realistic, great job!!!

All of your work is beautiful Ryan, however these scenes where you’re up high and looking out over a vast landscape are just absolutely breathtaking!!
The two trees in the foreground look like they’ve withstood the test of time; they’re perfect.

Honestly one of your best ever. I love it!

When I was in Hallstatt, Austria (well, the neighbouring town of Obertraun). I went atop Krippentstein and the view was similar. This image immediately took me back to that wonderful spot and time in life.
Very Beautiful! I share the enthusiasm of my fellow members. Once, on a multi-day backcountry trip, we had the enormous pleasure of spending the night at a campsite in pretty much this situation. Kept taking pictures, one after the other…
“The Land”! I’m a huge fan of a series (though it’s been years and years since I last ready them).
Gave me flashbacks of the The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant for some reason. Very beautiful.

Honestly this is one of the best I’ve ever seen you make. Very realistic, looks breathtaking.
Dual and triple-screen versions available now 🙂
Incredible render. These landscapes look so gorgeous on ultrawide screens (and realistically any others). I think this could look pretty cool with the time of day treatment too!
Agreed, can’t wait for the multiscreen!
Love this one! Night version, please?
I love the Middleearthian feel of this piece! A Lovely night render with a moon and perhaps a specific glow to each of the trees in the foreground? 😉
do you think it will be available in print as well?
This is glorious! It’s going on my desktop immediately!
Thanks Mark! I think sometimes you need to do a hard refresh for your rating to show up.

This one is perfect. Ryan, it isn’t saving my rating vote.

I can’t wait to see the multis here! This is astonishing!
