“The ‘Misty Mountains’ “

Posted by scorpiomkm on December 9, 2008

 

You see these Beautiful Mountains, folks! I took this photo while driving in a van in my Beloved New Zealand. These mountains are part of a Range called the ‘Southern Alps’ ~ but to me and Film Director Peter Jackson <g>, they will forever be J.R.R. Tolkien’s mighty  “Misty Mountains” of Middle Earth.

Can’t you folks just imagine Gollum hiding deep within the mountain’s roots?

Can’t you imagine Saruman’s Isengard nearby?

Can’t you just imagine a struggling “Fellowship” trapped on one of the peaks in their Search for the Gate to Moria?

Better yet, allow these magnificent mountains to symbolize the Challenges and Trials that must be faced and overcome for YOU to succeed in your Quest ~ whatever that Quest must be!

I’ll be Commenting on Chapter 3 of  “The Lord of the Rings” shortly; but I do wish you to keep in mind that the Tale of  Frodo Baggins and the “One Ring” is one of  Questing. That Theme  you’ll find in MOST tales of Fantasy, but in none better than “The Lord of the Rings”.
