hello,
I have a question about grammar:
Which version is what a native speaker would say|?

"In Northern Teheran, where the Alborz mountains seemed to loom touching distance outside the window."

or

"In Northern Teheran, where the Alborz mountains loomed in seeming touching distance outside the window."

or

"In Northern Teheran, where the Alborz mountains loomed seemingly in touching distance outside the window."

Thanks.

    I wrote it myself and am not sure at all. It is possible that all three are wrong and a fourth version is needed.

    I can say I 'prefer' the second one, since that is the one I wrote down first, soon to have second thoughts.

    Only #3 for me, and it's nice. It is not a complete sentence, of course, so it needs support from another sentence or you need to add to it. And I would use "within" over "in." But that's me.
