Hmmm, I never noticed that the rock structures were different between the two scenes. I always assume they were the same location.

Very interesting analysis.

The second screenshot looks like the oyster screen, you're right... But the trees don't match, there should be palmtrees there.

Also, maybe the Land of Winds is a part of Etheria, or maybe something entirely independent (this could be the place where those trees are located). Could that cloud land be the Astratos land mentioned in that preview? Because the name is very similar to Strato-cumulus. And this is a Strato-cumulus:

Looks like the same kind of clouds in those screenshots.

I think the Land of the Winds is definitely part of Etheria.  The different winds played a major role at the end of King's Quest 7 and their mountain top realm was still in the same general area.  So I guess we'll be visiting there again.

And personally, regarding the background forum art, the trees reminded me of the Oracle of the Tree from Mask of Eternity.  Particularly the gray one up top.  Of course he wasn't up in the clouds and the other trees look a bit meaner, so I don't know.
