***FOTR EE APPENDICES DISCUSSION: Design Galleries – The Realms of Middle-Earth*** (part 7) Can't Post

Here we are at the last of our travels: Silverlode and Amon Hen.

To find the Design Galleries, put in Disk 3 of FOTR EE. Choose Designing and Building Middle-Earth, then Design Galleries, The Realms of Middle-Earth.

When you choose the realm you want to look at, you will see a page of explanation. If you choose Slideshow, it will step automatically through your choice. There is audio commentary with some of the choices which are marked with a "wax" seal. If you want to spend more time looking at the images, you can choose to step through the pages of images one at a time.

I am not really going to be asking questions in these discussions. If you have a comment you would like to make, or a question that might make things clearer for you, please post it.

Silverlode:



First we see a drawing of the boats leaving Lothlorien. I don’t know who drew this.

Next are two photos of the boats. One with Aragorn and one with Legolas.





These boats don’t look comfortable for a long trip. I do see, though, that Legolas was given bundles of arrows to go with his new bow.



Here is a shot of the bridge. They really made it look Elven. It would be a great place for a wedding!



Our last shot of the Silverlode is the beautiful swan boat of Galadriel. I wanted to see Celeborn sitting in the boat with Galadriel standing behind him!

Our very last stop on our tour is Amon Hen.



First is a concept drawing of the Seeing Seat. I did like Alan Lee’s design with the eagles. Next is a photo of the finished Seeing Seat. On the bottom row is the large face that Frodo is by when he is confronted by Boromir in the movie. I REALLY would like to have something like that in my woods. I wonder how long it would take for the public at large to discover it. We know that people walk through our woods sometimes. Last is a concept painting of the Falls of Rauros done by Jeremy Bennett. I’ll bet you could hear that waterfall a long ways off.

Well, our time meeting the people and seeing the sights of Middle Earth is over. I never really paid too much attention to the galleries before I started this post, but now I know I will be visiting them often!
