First Watch by peet
First Watch

'It was Sam's turn that day to take the first watch, but Aragorn joined him. The others fell asleep. Then the silence grew until even Sam felt it. The breathing of the sleepers could be plainly heard. The swish of the pony's tail and the occasional movements of his feet became loud noises. Sam could hear his own joints creaking, if he stirred. Dead silence was around him, and over all hung a clear blue sky, as the Sun rode up from the East. Away in the South a dark patch appeared, and grew, and drove north like flying smoke in the wind.

'What's that, Strider? It don't look like a cloud,' said Sam in a whisper to Aragorn. He made no answer, he was gazing intently at the sky; but before long Sam could see for himself what was approaching.'

Lake Helevorn by peet
Lake Helevorn

'There Mount Rerir, and about it many lesser heights, stood out from the main range of Ered Lindon westward; and in the angle between Rerir and Ered Lindon there was a lake, shadowed by mountains on all sides save the south. That was Lake Helevorn, deep and dark, and beside it Caranthir had his abode; but all the great land between Gelion and the mountains, and between Rerir and the River Ascar, was called by the Noldor Thargelion, which signifies the Land beyond Gelion, or Dor Caranthir, the Land of Caranthir; and it was here that the Noldor first met the Dwarves.'

JRR Tolkien: 
The Silmarillion: Chapter 14: Of Beleriand and its Realms

Inspired in part from studying Beleriand and Realms of The North by Sirielle  by :iconsirielle:, which has made me think more about Beleriand and its landmarks. Hopefully in future I'll be able to continue with some more First Age landscapes.

Shadowfax and Gandalf Reunited by peet
Shadowfax and Gandalf Reunited

'As soon as Shadowfax saw Gandalf, he checked his pace and whinnied loudly; then trotting gently forward he stooped his proud head and nuzzled his great nostrils against the old man's neck.
Gandalf caressed him. 'It is a long way from Rivendell, my friend,' he said; 'but you are wise and swift and come at need. Far let us ride now together, and part not in this world again!''

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers: Book III,  Chapter 5: The White Rider

Avari Elf by peet
Avari Elf

'But many refused the summons, preferring the starlight and the wide spaces of Middle-earth to the rumour of the Trees; and these are the Avari, the Unwilling, and they were sundered in that time from the Eldar, and met never again until many ages were past.'

JRR Tolkien: 
The SilmarillionChapter 3: Of the Coming of the Elves and the Captivity of Melkor

:wave: Welcome to :iconi-heart-colors:! We're a group dedicated to showing imaginative, colorful and vibrant artists and their work. 

:bulletblue: We’re an unusual color-oriented group with our own rules--we only accept works that have more than a certain amount of color in them, are extremely color-focused and we really appreciate good presentation. This to only bring you, dear members and watchers, the color-wise best and most inspiring pieces of art! 

:bulletgreen: We welcome artists of all skill levels, as long as their art is colorful! If you are an artist who is not afraid to use colors, please do join us! If you're only an appreciator of colorful art, you might want to watch the group instead. 

:bulletyellow: To get started in the group, please familiarize yourself with our Rules of Submission, on the group's front page. If you have any questions, please take a stroll through our gallery — there are many examples of how we categorize art present in each folder!

:bulletred: And of course, if you have any questions or suggestions, please note the group and one of our helpful admins will get to you shortly!

Glad to have you aboard!
