Passing Inner Shield by alexandre-deschaumes Passing Inner Shield by alexandre-deschaumes
HD : [link]



you can now sing together :

"
Far over the misty mountains cold,

To dungeons deep and caverns old

We must away ere the break of day,

To seek the pale enchanted gold.



The dwarves of yore made mighty spells,

While hammers fell like ringing bells

In places deep, where dark things sleep,

In hollow halls beneath the fells. " ...


Jrr tolkien / the hobbit /
Summoning :)



Maybe one of my favorite from the trip , .. I know it's probably too dark .. but this is how I like it ... All these streams slowly evolving towards the ghostly vale of "Maelifelsandur"

Inspired by the music of • Raison d'être • In sadness, silence and solitude

I hate to be the bearer of breaking news, but I think it's actually "Passing Inner Shields"
I just learned this myself two days ago.. my id3/4 tags had it as "Passing Inner Shield" but on the official website I looked over a pdf of Raison's discography, and it has it listed as "Shields"

Great!
Inspiring, unreal.

Well, the HD on your website is a thousand times better to my eyes! All the details in the ground are lost here in this version and the brilliance of this work gets a little lost.

Love the atmosphere you create in your images.

Love the shot!! Love Tolkien!! Love the reference to the Song Of The Dwarves!!!!

If you haven't listened to it before, try and find a copy off the BBC Radio Broadcast of the Hobbit. There is a wonderful rendition of Far Over The Misty Mountains.

Keep up the great work! This truly made my day.

I totally agree...the impact would be lessened if the tones were lighter. It's perfect as it is. Beautifully foreboding.
and LOVE the Tolkien reference! ;)

Lovely! Dark suits it, I don't think it would have the same impact if it was lighter. It captures the brooding majesty of Iceland.
