Created for the "Nature Landscape" challenge at
The challenge was to create a premade background that can be used as stock - it must use one of the required backgrounds as a base, must be landscape orientation, and it can't have animals, people or textures. I tried to keep it fairly simple so people can take this in different directions - I had a full moon in there but took it out. Look for it in the photo-manip I'm going to create from this.
In the creation of this, all stock resources used allow for premades to be made from their stock.Credits:

Here are my stock rules:
You may use my stock in either photo-manipulations or as reference for digital and traditional art. Please credit me in your description and notify me so I can fav your work. For instructions on how to link to a deviant and deviation, please see FAQ #81: How can I make links to other deviants, deviations, or websites?
If you use my stock in photo-manipulations, you must follow DA’s definitions of a photo-manip (two or more photographic elements blended together to create something new). Please do not just apply a filter, color tint, add text or otherwise minimally alter my stock and repost as your own. For more information on DA’s categories and definitions, please see this article: [link]
You can use my stock for artworks to be submitted off-site on the condition that you notify me with a link and that the artwork is for non-commercial use.
You can use my stock in DA prints - no need to ask, but a note to let me know would be nice. For all other commercial projects, you must note me and ask for permission before using my stock.
You can use my unaltered nature and object photography stock to create other stock for use on DA as long as you credit, link and notify. Please note this is only for my unaltered nature and object photography – exceptions are my premade backgrounds, any model stock and my carved .psd files.
Please respect me and my work. Do not use my stock in pornographic, demeaning or hateful works. Do not redistribute unaltered and do not claim them as your own.
If you have any questions regarding the usage of my stock, please note me. Thank you!
