the enchanted isles by fraterchaos the enchanted isles by fraterchaos
"And in that time also, which songs call Nurtale Valinoreva, the Hiding of Valinor, the Enchanted Isles were set, and all the seas about them were filled with shadows and bewilderment. And these isles were strung as a net in the Shadowy Seas from the north to the south, before Tol Eressea, the Lonely Isle, is reached by one sailing west. Hardly might any vessel pass between them, for in the dangerous sounds the waves sighed for ever upon dark rocks shrouded in mist. And in the twilight a great weariness came upon mariners and a loathing of the sea; but all that ever set foot upon the islands were there entrapped, and slept until the Change of the World. Thus it was that as Mandos foretold to them in Araman, the Blessed Realm was shut against the Noldor; and of the many messengers that in after days sailed into the West none came ever to Valinor- save one only; the mightiest mariner of song.


-from "The Silmarillion" by J.R.R. Tolkien

yes, it turned out pretty well, although some of the fog in the foreground didn't work quite as I wanted... for some weird reason it came out blue and too dense, and i didn't notice until it was posted because Bryce can'r display all 1024X768 in the working window, and its only after you save that you see what the bottom and right edge look like, unless you remember to scroll around and look BEFORE saving, and this time, I forgot :)

Thanks
