Standing on an open roof top a few hundred metres above the earth, gusts of wind in my hair as the sun set over the country of Japan.The hustle and bustle of one of the most densely populated cities on the planet was a distant memory and a visual feast erupted before my eyes.
Suddenly mega sized sky scrapers had an the impact on me like that of a set of dominoes on an infant child. Nature snaked it’s way through the urban sprawl in the form of rivers and thick greenery sprouting elemental tones of wind and fire. Whilst above the sky lit up like the aftermath of a giant interstellar spacecraft breaking earths atmosphere . The last the light of the day from our solar systems only star, the sun, reflected on buildings below and reached inside them revealing some of their golden tendencies.

The complete list of software programs used during the production of this image though are:
Thanks everyone 😉 I enjoyed making this image even though I probably spent to much time on it.
Thanks guys and gals, Luke
