Here I thought it would be fun to post some speculative images of what views from the shores of Titan's methane lakes might look like.

These are AI-generated, using Midjourney with the prompt "On the shores of the methane lakes of Titan".

Wow, I've seen a lot of images on this board, but these have to be a first. I don't think they could have been imaginable in 2004....

Those are great fun indeed. I particularly like the first one and the foreground of the second. From that point on AI seems a bit confused about whether Titan is underfoot or in the sky. Then again perhaps the fault is mine for thinking too literally.

Thanks, all, for the comments.

Good point. My brain interpreted it as Saturn, with the rings somehow not visible through the haze, but you're right, the AI probably just got confused and put Titan up there.

A few more attempts, two of a methane downpour on Titan, and one of Selk crater:
