"Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them.
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie..."
- J.R.R. Tolkein
Sorry for the watermark, but in order to see the detail, I have to post it here big, and, well, I should be watermarking everything anyways.
Photomanip LOOSELY BASED on Return of the King - I saw a few shots that gave me ideas, and in a fit of insomnia, spat this one out in oh ten or twelve hours worth of work, since 6am this morning.
It's a manip-made-watercolor...of the garden atop Minas Tirith, and in the distance can be seen the glow of Mount Doom, in the lands of Mordor. WOW I'm such a flaming geek...
All totalled there are around 19 images in this photomanip. Four for the sky, four for the mountains, and 11 comprising the foreground elements. All photos courtesy of StockXchang [link]

I'll post detail shots in the morning, or sometime tomorrow. Right now, it's 4:30 am, I've had about four hours sleep since yesterday, I'm going to bed.
There is a mini-poster (12x18) of this image now available at Cafepress. You can find it here: [link]
