C is for ... Cwm, I guess. I do like that word.

This is the reverse of my Cwm Waterfall image, this time from behind the waterfall (and it's late summer rather than spring). This perspective was inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien's description from the chapter "The Window on the West" in The Lord of the Rings.

“They stood on a wet floor of polished stone, the doorstep, as it were, of a rough-hewn gate of rock opening dark behind them. But in front a thin veil of water was hung, so near that Frodo could have put an outstretched arm into it. It faced westward. The level shafts of the setting sun behind beat upon it, and the red light was broken into many flickering beams of ever-changing colour. It was as if they stood at the window of some elven-tower, curtained with threaded jewels of silver and gold, and ruby, sapphire and amethyst, al kindled with an unconsuming fire.”

It's intriguing; unusual idea! I can see a little house in the distance. I wonder if it belongs to Tom Bombadil? I'm a bit lost and I don't know if he's anywhere near.

I'd like to roam around in this 3D world of yours. Can I take a picnic hamper?

People are like cameras--sometimes they lose focus.

Thanks, Hannah -- CWM even comes in my size! Have my free desktops now, and the autumn one is squirrelled away in my autumn folder.

A extremely creative render Hannah!!! A great entry for the contest:):) Some people say there's room for Jello, I say there's room for CWM:):)
