to the Finding Middle Earth Gallery!

Finding Middle Earth is a Photography Group for fellow Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit fans who love to find and take pictures of places that could be in Middle Earth or even in Valinor.

You can post photographs of nature or architecture that remind you of places in Tolkien's books. You can also post photos of locations that are known to have inspired Tolkien himself.

The main focus is locations. There may be people in it, but they should not stand out too much.

Please post only photos that are not completely out of focus, under- or overexposed.

For the start there will be galleries of the main places mentioned in Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit. If you have photos fitting other places you can post them into the 'Other Places' folder. I will add further folders on demand.

Also let me know if you're interested in helping to moderate the group.

Tolkien's Birthday Toast 2020

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 3, 2020, 12:34 PM

J.R.R. Tolkien was born 128 years ago, on January 3rd 1892 in Bloemfontein.

Together with the Tolkien Society, we invite you to celebrate the birthday of this much loved author by raising a glass at 9pm your local time
(or when you can, it's past 9 here already, but I just put my dauhter to sleep).
The toast is simply: "To the Professor!", or if you prefer Quenya, "Alasse merendenna i Carmo!"

May I write some words about the "Northmoore project", here in the comment section? It's spontaneous, no advertising, that's why I ask you before... 💚 🌈 🎃

May I suggest to create a folder dedicated to the "Old forest" at the borders of the Shire...where "the voices said the trees could move in the water and could speak to each other..." ? (Quothing by memory :lol: ) I know you already have Fangorn and Mirkwood, but the "Old forest" is one of the most intriguing chapters of the LOTR to me... I may have a lot of pictures I would be happy to give you concerning this "old misterious forest" . Thank you for reading! :rose:
