    It looks enchanted Jan! I was just about to ask if there were any hobbits around when I read it was a Lord of the Rings location.

  • Thank you Georgie, the place looks and has that mystery feel about it, but apart from some strange, unexplained noise and whisper I couldn’t see anything ;)))

    Great capture Jan, not hard to see why the area was used in the Lord of the Ring movies.

  • You right, there is something about this place ;)
