I'm not surprised - it is in a very idyllic part of the country [In reply to] Can't Post

I always thought Castle Coch had a Middle-earth feel about it as well.

Can't agree with that... [In reply to] Can't Post

19th century Gothic Revival never struck me as very Middle Earthy...

This was my first copy of FOTR [In reply to] Can't Post

Link

Probably explains why I have that opinion.

Oh yes, John Howe! [In reply to] Can't Post

Part of why I never really liked his illustrations...

But yeah, I have R&B's Hobbit images seared into my head (saw the cartoon before I read the book), and have difficulty seeing Bilbo as anything but a huge-headed creature with massive round eyes.

Honestly [In reply to] Can't Post

These photos make me wish that LOTR and the Hobbit were shot in Europe rather than New Zealand.

I always felt that the Pacific light, and the young terrain of New Zealand, were all wrong for Middle Earth...

Ah, well. I guess it gave their tourism industry a boost, which is a good thing...

I don't think it's a bad interpretation of Rivendell [In reply to] Can't Post

Not ideal, of course. I actually imagine this is what Minas Tirith on Tol Sirion looks like. Just larger, and grander.

I love John Howe [In reply to] Can't Post

 I generally like all Tolkien illustrators apart from Nasmith, not too keen on his stuff, but its all personal taste.

I agree about Rohan anyway, [In reply to] Can't Post

I was disappointed there. I was expecting the green pastures and sea of grasses, not that yellow scrubby stuff.

I like Howe on occasion [In reply to] Can't Post

But Lee, Blok and Tolkien himself are my favorite artistic interpreters of Tolkien.

and I know what 'coch' means... [In reply to] Can't Post

having done the Welsh dance, Ty Coch Caerdydd - Red House of Cardiff. - coch=red

Interestingly (and terribly off topic) there is a Scottish dance called Red House and and English one, as well - none of the three are the same dance but there seems to be something about Red Houses - or maybe the dances were all written for the same red house.

and in case anyone is wondering ddraig = dragon. :-)

The Welsh know dragons!

Elanor, all but one of the pictures in this thread are too big [In reply to] Can't Post

I deleted all but one of the pictures because they either exceeded the maximum dimensions (width x height) or file size. We need to limit the size of pictures here mostly due to finite server storage space (it adds up over years and years!). I also cut out some of the bottom of the thread completely because it was taking too long to delete all the pictures.

Please refer to the picture posting guidelines from the FAQ below (and also on the Welcome board). There's also a link to a picture posting guide provided by Magpie that will help you figure out how to resize the pictures. Feel free to either re-size them and re-post, or just link to your source or photo album, and let people follow the link to the full-size picture (and advantage to linking is you can put all the links in one post). Anyway, either is fine really. Beautiful pictures, btw!

Thanks!

From Item 2.20 in the TORn FAQ:

The specific guidelines for posting pictures within the message body of your post are as follows: the maximum size of any picture posted should be 525 wide x 400 pixels high (or a better measure is: 210,000 pixels squared - width x height), but no wider than 670 pixels. The maximum file size per picture should be 45k. The cumulative file size of all pictures in one post should not exceed 225k (5 pictures of the maximum filesize of 45k, 10 pictures of a filesize of 22.5k, etc.). These guidelines apply to pictures hosted on other sites as well as to pictures posted as attachments to your post. For more detailed help on posting within a message body, check out Magpie's step-by-step TORn Image Posting Guide.
