Trompe L'Oeil?

Thinking Sepia Saturday, although it's Sunday,  I've created this illusory landscape. I wonder how it appears to you?

Believable?

If so, where in the world might it be? And how would you describe what you see in it? Let's hear what your imagination decides...

I can see a bear or a dog? (Where that *hill* is!)

It's certainly believable - aren't you clever?

I see mountains, perhaps a volcano threatening to erupt. For some reason cows keep coming into my mind but that doesn't seem plausible and they're too large anyway, so they must be trees and in front of them are homes, low white buildings.

This is somewhere remote.

On the other hand it could be a wagon train travelling through a dry valley.

Maggie - I can see your dog!
And jabblog- I hope you're writing the story!

It's pretty fuzzy, which is necessary I suppose, but it looks like an arid or semi arid region to me.

Is it Cezanne's Mont St. Victoire?
No? well then it looks like it!!

Some sort of animal - more porcine though!

I see a spread of buildings (maybe a village) with woodland areas behind it and a huge mountain in the distance. Scottish Highlands :-) Jo

A farmstead, at the foot of a mountain range?

Just so happen to be reading "Land of the Painted Caves" by Jean Auel and it resembles tents set up in from of the caves and mountains for the Summer Gathering. That would be in France where the caves are actually located. Are you familiar with Jean Auel's Earth Children Series? The is the last of six. She was in Kentucky just recently for a book signing. It took her about 5 to 6 years to write each book. She said she is too old for another one.

I think of Florence Nightingale somewhere in Italy. Haven't the foggiest why, but it speaks to how evocative your landscape is.

I see a coastal (or lakeside) village surrounded by mountains... with a flock of starlings flying overhead!

It is the set of 'Zulu' in Natal, S.A.

And I was sure that it was adobe Indian dwellings in New Mexico.

Have I arrived on the coast of Scotland? My ticket says Balmoral and I was meant to have tea there but I fell asleep on the train. I've missed my stop. I have no idea where I am and I'm quite thirsty.

How clever of you - yes, this could be what ever the eye decides. I see a remote Scots farm nestled in the highlands.

Looks like our hills at dusk

Looks like a typical small community in the foothills beneath a mountain to me. There many such communities in US.

It looks to me like a mining town in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado in the nineteenth century.

I see a small village, somewhere in Italy. I can taste the wine made in the vineyards behind the village. Yum.

This could be Northern Michigan, USA, where quaint farms and small towns are nestled between rolling hills and Lake Michigan. I lived in such a place for almost 8 years.

actually - it's Patagonia - see 3rd pic down in my latest post 8-)

Could it be the Wild West somewhere Pen? A couple of the rocks look like grave headstones... ? - Dave
