Elyna of Rivendell has just left Hobbiton.
White Tree

There is this place down by the water front near my house, and its all quiet and nobody ever goes down there exept me, but it reminds me of the place where Frodo and Sam leave the rest of the Fellowship (cant remember what its called-mental blank). Its so peaceful yet kind of menacing, and i always used to go there to write my story. You have to slide down a steep slope to get to it though, so the council decided to block it off. I WAS NOT HAPPY! However i guess it will still live in memory in this thread.

I found Dunharrow and the Barrow Downs...

...both located on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. These pictures are from the internet, not my own, cause I'm having trouble with my technology.

This place really reminded me of Dunharrow, not so much for its physical inaccessibility but more for the forbidding way the hills loom over you. And of course the look of the hills/mountains is perfect - if they were just a little more tall and steep, that's exactly how I imagined Dunharrow to look like.

And this place, called the Fairy Glen, has a Barrow-Downs feel to it. For one thing, it has a lot of hills. For another, it has a lot of stones. Some small stones are placed in spirals by fairies when no one sees. But many stones of various shapes and sizes poke out here and there. Though none of them actually cap the peaks of the hills or are big enough to match the description, they create a similar feeling. They clearly are there at random, but their placement just looks not quite random enough, creating the feeling of allure and mistrust and the same time. Perfect for the Downs, no?
