Looking for a quote on Peter Jackson's favourite shot/scene - Exodus from Edoras? Can't Post

The new CHOW discussion on The Hobbit board has raised a discussion on how visually similar the Dwarves exodus from Erebor is compared to the exodus from Edoras in The Two Towers.

Now, I seem to remember hearing (or reading) at one point that one of Peter Jackson's favourite shots/scenes in The Lord of the Rings trilogy was the exodus of Edoras - specifically the shot of all the Town's people leaving Edoras and walking along the contours of the surrounding land. I could be misremembering - the scene could also be the shot of the Rohirrim leaving Edoras (for Dunharrow) in The Return of the King, or it could be before the warg attack in The Two Towers.

Whichever shot it is, I can't seem to find the quote about or from Peter Jackson. So this really is quite a trivial question, but for peace of mind, I'd love to find the actual quote (if it exists at all). I seem to remember it being on one of the DVDs. I've checked all the cast and crew commentaries for The Two Towers and The Return of the King - and nothing was said. I've also briefly checked a couple of the other features, but without watching them all properly, I can't find what I'm looking for. I could have also skipped over, if it wasn't said during the actual scene taking place.

So in a last-ditch effort, I'm hoping that someone may remember where/when Peter Jackson said this (or whether someone said it of Jackson). Hopefully someone has watched the DVD Appendices recently, and can narrow it down for me. Tongue
