The Beacons Are Lit! by Nelleke The Beacons Are Lit! by Nelleke
The beacon itself was not there, it has been painted in. The landscape is real.


Three years ago I uploaded a photo of clouds that reminded me of the Beacon-scene in the Lord of the Rings. Living in Holland it was the closest I could get ;)

The Beacons Are Lit by Nelleke

So I was editing this photo (upped the contrast and darkened the top) from Scotland (where else) and discovered there was something there was this figure on top of the mountain that really reminded me of a pyre. After that I couldn't resist adding the fire! I LOVE that scene :la:




-------------
Location: The Isle of Skye, Scotland.

My photos are NOT stock. This means I do not want them to be used in any way. I don't mind them being used as a reference for a drawing/painting though: please

nice!  Love the dramatic color.  The beacon is a nice touch -- yeah, it's added but still fits without looking hokey.  The brooding darkness, with the patch of light on the winding path along the ridge, it great.  The approaching darkness of Sauron...

As a big LOTR fan since the 70's, I'd say you really captured the essence of what that would have looked like (and SHOULD have in the movie).  Very emotional, I love it!
