Seeking Fantasy Inspiration?

Looking for a great fantasy setting? Need a visual for inspiration? Another realm is close than you think!

We live in a pretty incredible and beautiful world. From mountains to deserts, this earth boasts scenery that would take your breath away, and sometimes it can appear as alien as the moon. They say fact is stranger than fiction, and there's places in this world beyond imagination. You might not discover dancing elves, but you're sure to find a setting that mirrors your story.

Next time you're struggling to envision a scene, just step outside and explore. Grab a coffee table book full of colorful scenes. Search the Internet. Watch Planet Earth - not the lame Disney version, but the full, multi-disc boxed set. I guarantee you'll see locations & scenes beyond incredible!

Where else might you discover other-world beauty?

And if you're really desperate for those dancing elves, dress your kids in green felt and pointy ears and turn on some dance tunes. You'll be inspired all right!

Now THIS. Is my kind of post and muse. People look and look in search for "miracles" ... they are everywhere. Your own existence and consciousness, for starters!

Awesome pics, too. :)

Love those videos. I should break them out and be awed again. I also keep a big book called Ocean. Great pics of water and animals who live in water.

Thanks, Marvin!

I just fell in love with the Planet Earth series when my husband gave me the set for Christmas two years ago. Simply fantastic. I'm a nature & animal person, but there were so many things I'd never seen nor heard of before!

I drove to a speaking gig recently and passed an area in California that I had never seen but recognized. Apparently they use it in lots of sci-fi movies. It was other worldly. You are absolutely right. Inspiration is all around us.
