Salt Water

When you arrive at the Salt Water landing point, you arrive in an extremely energetic downpour… more of a meteor shower, than rain…

… once you get off the platform you landed on, the intensity of the downpour eases…

… eventually you walk out of it, into the purple dusk. I’m not sure if this is the constant wind light here, or if I just arrived at dusk…

… but it was pretty…

… and made for some nice shots.

The Forgotten

When you visit ‘The Forgotten‘, you land in this magical swamp. It’s a no-fly build, so you have to follow the various walkways and fallen trees, to get around… be careful, you can fall off a tree and get stuck inside a rock (well, I did, anyway…) luckily, it’s one of those builds where, if you double click somewhere, you don’t get sent back to the landing area as punishment…

… the swamp is quite big and there’s lots to see, here, but it is, by no means, all there is to see! You need to find the pergola, with the arrows along it’s side, which will lead you…

… to an entirely different landscape…

… quite a big one, too, though every bit as magical as the swamp area…

… there is also plenty of wonderful stuff to discover here, too…

… I was really impressed with this build… the word ‘magnificent’ kept coming to mind, so I thought I would use it (back there)…

… I particularly liked this area… it put me in mind of the ‘barrow downs’, from the book, Lord of the Rings and, because it did, Bo Hansson’s ‘Fog on the Barrow Downs’ began playing in my head, because that is imbedded in the human’s mind, from reading the book and listening to that record as a teenager…

… but, I digress…

… there are wolves in Hansson’s music, too (:
