Skyrim. Ein Wintermärchen

Time for a new wallpaper. Instead of my previous Dash Above Cloudsdale, I now have this Skyrim screenshot I took recently (ever so slightly edited to remove a few stray snowflakes and artifacts):

(Click for larger — 1920x1080 PNG, 1571 KiB)

This is a view from the area around Journeyman's Nook, towards the College of Winterhold, with Skytemple Ruins also visible further behind it; on the right there's also what I think is the Wreck of the Pride of Tel Vos.

Isn't that lovely? And here's the soundtrack for it:

It's Winterhold
Blue skies are gleaming – oh –
Seagulls are flyin' over
Elk are passin' by
Smoking chimney-tops
Am I dreaming?
Am I dreaming?

The nights draw in
There's a silky moon up in the sky – yeah –
Children are fantasizing
Grown-ups are standin' by
What a super feeling
Am I dreaming?
Am I dreaming?


So quiet and peaceful
Tranquil and blissful
There's a kind of magic in the air
What a truly magnificent view
A breathtaking scene

A cozy fireside chat
A little this, a little that
Sound of merry laughter skippin' by
Gentle rain beatin' on my face
What an extraordinary place!

It's all so beautiful
Like a landscape painting in the sky – yeah –
Mountains are zoomin' higher – mmm –
Little girls scream an' cry
My world is spinnin' and spinnin' and spinnin'
It's unbelievable
Sends me reeling
Am I dreaming?
Am I dreaming?

Oooh — it's bliss.

Thinking about it, in fact, that song is really begging for a music video of impressions of Skyrim: fertile plains and snow-capped mountains, scenes from the Dragonborn's home with her kids leaping into her arms, rain gently soaking the fur on her face, mead shared with friends at the inn, majestic dragons' flights, and so on. Ah, if only I knew how to do that sort of thing.
