Weathertop from sort of NW looking across the southern end of the Weather Hills.

Cerin Amroth- I know the white flowers are the wrong shape and there should be some yellow ones too- its a work in progress.

[img][/img]


edit- I thought I'd give the books description of this so you can see what I am aiming for;
'To the left stood a great mound, covered with a sward of grass as green as Spring-time in the Elder Days. Upon it, as a double crown, grew two circles of trees; the outer had bark of snowy white, and were leafless but beautiful in their shapely nakedness; the inner were mallorn-tress of great height, still arrayed in pale gold...At the feet of the trees, and all about the green hillsides the grass was studded with small golden flowers shaped like stars. Among them, nodding on slender stalks, were other flowers, white and palest green; they glimmered as a mist amid the rich hue of the grass. Over all the sky was blue, and the sun of afternoon glowed upon the hill...'

So a bit of work to go yet- needs more flower populations, especially gold and pale green.

Embarassed Thankyou Ally.
I'm working on it now, making the sky less cloudy, the mallorn leaves more gold and adding flower populations. I will post the result when its done but I am expecting a render time of about 8-10hours, so probably render it overnight and post it tomorrow.

It's perfect Very Happy The first attempt was good too, but I thought there were too few flowers. Was going to leave a comment about that, but then you said you were adding more flowers, so I waited. There's no need for a third attempt, this one is beautiful Smile

I look forward to that one (especially since it isn't in the film) Very Happy

Here's a picture that I found on the local newspaper's website, thought perhaps you lot would like to see it as well Smile

A 30 min drive or so from where I live. Didn't really notice the ski tracks, to be honest, but they are a little mysterious confused I know the people who live around that area are a bit odd, though, so you never know Laughing

Dimrill Dale is proving a tricky beast -getting the three peaks behind just right the main problem- but in the meantime heres a 1st attempt at the Lonely Mountain.

I didn't have the book to hand so reasoned thus- the bare branched blackened ones and the stumps are the remains of the woods that were there before Smaug came and the pines are all young uns that have grown up in the relative peace whilst Smaugs being sitting on his gold- might be too many of them though.
I will need to check the book for the description. And it gives somewhere for the talking birds to roost!

Pretty far from how I pictured it, but that doesn't mean I don't like it! Smile I guess I agree with Odo (if I interpret his comment correctly) that there are too many trees. I don't have the book at hand either, though, so who knows whether your picture is closer to the book than my (imagined) picture. Nonetheless, I'm getting more impressed with every new pic, keem them coming Very Happy

From TH-

"They made north-west, slanting away from the River Running, and drawing ever nearer and nearer t a great spur of the Mountain that was flung out sothwards towards them.......The land about them grew bleak and barren, though once, as Thorin told them, it had been green and fair. There was little grass, and before long there was neither bush nor tree, and only broken and blackened stumps to speak of ones long vanished. They were come to the Desolation of the Dragon.."

The picture is looking roughly from west-ish. So the big spur you can see going south, the Gate would be on the other side of it. The view is a few miles away from the mountain so I think there should be trees, but they should stop at a distant from the mountain and only the stummps should remain, and the grass should fade out too on the mountain- and looking at Tolkiens illustration there should be some snow on top.

The Carrock
"...The earth was much nearer, and below them were trees, that looked like oaks and elms, and wide grass lands, and a river running through it all. But cropping out of the ground, right in the path of the stream which looped itself about it, was a great rock, almost a hill of stone, like a last outpost of the distant mountains, or a huge piece cast miles into the plain by some giant among giants."

(Its quite wide this one you may need to adjust your page size to fit)

Rather than post the latest version of the Lonely Mt I've just replaced the old one in the above post with the new one, and a copy of Tolkiens illustration for comparison.
