Those who do not know Lord of the Rings will not understand this.

This is when Sméagol (Gollum) is first corrupted by the one ring. This takes place in the early days of Middle Earth and how the ring is lost by the evil lord, Sauron, and finally found by Gollum. This is covered in The Silmarillion, the history of Middle Earth. The Hobbit carries on from here and describes how Bilbo gets the ring and finds out its great powers. The trilogy, Lord of the Rings, follows on from the Hobbit and describes the destruction of the ring and thus the loss of the evil lord Sauron's powers.

I saw Lord of the Rings but maybe was not watching closely enough to connect this image, however I like the composition and thinking behind this shot it works for meSmile not forgetting the light

I'm afraid I know nothing about the Lord of the Rings, but I'm sure your image has depicted what you wanted it to Smile Carol

A clever image, well composed and produced! I understood the concept without having to refer to the title! Excellent!
I have read some of Tolkien's books but I have not read "The Silmarillion" so perhaps I ought to!
