Layered instance of trees on the mountains and hills.

HDRI and lighting.

Close and distant clouds - volumetric.

Mountain clouds/dense mist patches - more volumetric.

Flip fluid for the ocean - using spectrum and simulation.

White water particle - on the waves.

Defining sand banks at base of mountains.
