Postcards from Tamriel - stunning Skyrim vistas you have to see

You’ve probably seen plenty of them about in the past few days, men and women hurrying about their business like they’ve somewhere else to be, distracted expressions on their faces and occassional worried glances up at the sky. Yes, those are the poor souls who’ve had to leave the house and hence stop playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for a few painful hours. We feel for them.
I encountered one such individual yesterday when I popped to the shops. The initial greeting was followed by phrases that included the words ‘up until 5am’, ‘friends were too… could see them on Steam’, ‘incredible scenery’, ‘awesome draw distance’ and ‘dragons something something dragons something dragons something.’ And so on.
It just so happens that the chap in question runs the rather fab website DeadEndThrills (we’ve featured his site before – specifically these incredi-screenshots from the PC version of GTA IV). And it just so happens that while traversing Skyrim’s many and diverse landscapes, he’s been keeping a photo journal. Click here for 66 brilliant Skyrim screenshots like the one below.
There are more Skyrim screens on the DeadEndThrills site, along with explainations as to how he’s tweaked the PC version to vastly improve the graphics. Clever he is.
Keep watching the skies, folks...
