'Then Elrond and Galadriel rode on; for the Third Age was over, and the Days of the Rings were passed, and an end was come of the story and song of those times. With them went many Elves of the High Kindred who would no longer stay in Middle-earth; and among them, filled with a sadness that was yet blessed and without bitterness, rode Sam, and Frodo, and Bilbo, and the Elves delighted to honour them.
Though they rode through the midst of the Shire all the evening and all the night, none saw them pass, save the wild creatures; or here and there some wanderer in the dark who saw a swift shimmer under the trees, or a light and shadow flowing through the grass as the Moon went westward.'

JRR Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King: Book VI,  Chapter 9: The Grey Havens

I love that at the first glance you only see a beautiful painting of a forest, simple yet so intriguing. Then I saw the elves and was blown away. Awesome work! Love finding hidden details in artwork!
