I never would have thought that Mordor would look so lovely. I only lately wondered, while watching the trilogy again, if Mordor would become more habitable thanks to the Ring being destroyed.

I love the snow/ice covered mountains in the background, really is a wonderful contrast with the middle/foreground.
