The return of the picture version of Deviant Descriptions!
Deviantly describe the scene without using the names of the objects. (This one's a bit easier since it doesn't look like it's from this planet! ;-) Don't use water or rock. Dig into what objects look and feel like rather than telling what they are.
Capture the senses' experience. What does it feel like to your whole body? What does it sound like. What does it smell like? Taste like?
Go further and find a mood or personality of the place and let those inspire the descriptive words you choose.
Try unexpected adjectives and vivid verbs. For example, svelt, sleek, oozing, crouching aren't words normally associated with places, but can create fresh images.
(When you're done, the picture links to the Wikipedia article about it.)
