Christopher,

Wonderful rendering of Himlayan terrain. I do not detect vertical exaggeration, which is something I avoid in my own POV-Ray landscapes, too. This reach of the Brahmaputra was once thought to contain the highest waterfalls in the world, but it proved very difficult to explore.

It is interesting that the Ganges and Brahmaputra not only arise near each other, as do the Rhine and the Danube, but that they also actually meet before entering the Bay of Bengal. One of our world's many marvels.

Thank you.

After traveling the narrowest part of the Tsangpo River Gorge in 1993 (where the terrain is hard to imagine from the bottom of the canyon), I am stunned by this spectacular visualization.
