Great Second Life Destinations: Sculpture as Landscape at Gates of Memories



By this time in January, many winter themed destinations are either closed or have converted to sunny Springtime landscapes. This poses a challenge for any blogger who reviews a snowy landscape that may no longer exist by an article publication date.  This will actually be my last post deliberately restricted to snowy winter destinations since odds are they may no longer be up by the time read my blog posts. You can find links to my summary posts of earlier Winter 2015/16 destinations further down in this article, or by accessing my posts in chronological order here.




With all this in mind, I hope that Gates of Memories, the subject of this blog post, is still covered in snow by the time you visit. Gentle snowdrifts serves as an excellent backdrop to sculptures by Mistero Hifeng and other great artists. Clusters of winter trees and several complimentary residential structures complete what is a very pretty landscape. I particularly like the tigers and leopards whose coloring blends in perfectly here. All photography was taken with the actual Windlight Sky setting used at the destination with a slight boost in color to bring out warmth in the sky and landscape. To visit this highly recommended destination:
