Moody Skyrim (Skyrim Special Edition screenshots)

There’s no denying the atmosphere and immersion that Skyrim is capable of. And what better way to experience the otherworldliness than on a moody, rainy night. This is when I find the tranquil music of Skyrim is especially hard hitting.

  • Game: Skyrim Special Edition
  • Locations: Falkreath and Lake Ilinalta
  • Platform: Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, and PC
  • Screenshots taken on Xbox Series X

Each of the screenshots below (click or tap to enlarge) were taken outside of Falkreath and around Lake Ilinalta during a particularly stark evening. I find that Lake Ilinalta is fantastic at setting the scene for a play session with its stillness enveloped by surrounding mountains. It’s also a great place for virtual photography and screenshots.

Slaughterfish can prove to be a bit of a nuisance when trying to maneuver through the lake, but it’s otherwise peaceful.

As per, some facts about Lake Ilinalta:

  • Once believed to be haunted
  • Feeds the longest river in Skyrim, the White River
  • Structures have been lost to the lake over the years
  • Malyn Varen settled his necromancer cult in the flooded ruins of the lake

These screenshots are from the vanilla version of Skyrim Special Edition played on my Xbox Series X. I performed no edits or modifications.
