    Something otherworldly about the landscape

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural.

    There was something otherworldly about the landscape engulfed by mist, and lit by a pale yellow light of dawn.

    You need to change the "a" to "the" in that sentence. Consider also using "ethereal" or "mystical" instead of "otherworldly."

    You do not, I think, need the comma after "mist".
