view from Edoras

Posted by
Darkelf Photography (Perth, Australia) on 18 June 2014 in Landscape & Rural.


this is the view from the Rohan town of Edoras sitting atop a hill, surrounded by the majestic mountains... more commonly it is known as Mount Sunday and it is situated in the Rangitata Valley in the Canterbury region of New Zealand...

the drive through about 30km of dusty gravel road in a rental vehicle and a climb up the hill were well worth the effort... the valley itself is amazing and covers a great distance... the added bonus was that there was no one else in sight for the entire journey when we went there last year... just us and the entire scenery taken straight out of the Lord of the Rings for our enjoyment...

the movie set for Edoras was disassembled as soon as the shooting has finished and not a trace of it remains in this pristine landscape...
