    Post September Entry: Skippers' Lament

    Hi all

    Couldn't resist getting back into a challenge after a few months off. The idea will be for an area of ocean coastline that is renowned for destroying vessels, often under strange circumstances. Kind of like a bermuda triangle, except its not a triangle and its nowhere near Bermuda.

    Any way below is my start.

    Looks great so far. I think the cliffs or mountains could use a little more elevation variance. Right now, it looks like cracks or canyons in the caprock.

    I like the subtle/faded navigational chart in the background, nice touch!
