The Witch King before Eowyn

'Suddenly the great beast beat its hideous wings, and the wind of them was foul. Again it leaped into the air, and then swiftly fell down upon Éowyn, shrieking, striking with beak and claw.

Still she did not blench; maiden of the Rohirrim, child of kings, slender but as a steel blade, fair yet terrible.'

JRR Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King: Book V, Chapter 6: The Battle of the Pelennor Fields

I love this! The shadows, the atmosphere, Eowyn's armor and pose - all fantastic! Love 
And I also saw the Nazgul king's steed as a pterodactyl when i read the book :-)
