After seeing so many lovely pictures of the sim H22O done by Squonk Levenque and Miuccia Klaar, I had to go see it for myself.
I arrived at the landing point, and in order to get down to the main sim I used a drain pipe right by a tree. I landed inside of a lighthouse and took a look around inside, which I highly recommend you do before venturing outside. Once I was outside, I turned my volume on, something I rarely do in SL, and let the sound of rain and thunder wash over me. The sim has some of the best elements for me personally. It is hauntingly beautiful, and set up for a variety of blogger and photographer needs.
This morning I went to Gates of Destiny, and instantly fell in love with it. For some reason, I am always drawn to either open water/artistic sims and darker themed sims.
Gates of Destiny has so much to take in, you could spend a couple of hours going through it all and looking at all the small details put into place. You can tell that a lot of thought and work went into it. Its great for bloggers and people that like to take pictures of sims as well.
My favorite parts of the sim are the usage of statues. They add so much.
