The following images show some of the special effect that are available under
Fog Effects. In this image, we are skimming along the cliff faces
above the Colorado River and down Glenwood canyon just east of Glenwood Springs
Colorado. This image show the fog effects available in Estierra. Like real
fog, the fog gets denser with distance and as you fly along, distant objects
gradually emerge from fog, becoming clearer as you move closer.
This image shows Pikes Peak in Colorado displayed
using the color-by-slope option. The option colors steep terrain light colors
corresponding to rocks and gentle terrain greens and yellows corresponding
to vegetation. As you can see, this give a very realist image. In fact,
it looks very similar to color photo of the actual mountain.

To show you how realistic the terrain models can be, here is
an actual photograph of Pikes Peak taken from a slightly different angle.
