The Misty Mountains

I took a walk around Sandstone farm yesterday in an attempt to take some pictures of the guinea fowl, however they are very skittish and after being caught in a shower of rain I gave up on that idea and decided to photograph the scenery instead. The rain perked everything up and put a wonderful green glow about. The distant mountains are the mountains of Lesotho and are apparently the inspiration for the Misty Mountains in J.R.R Tolkien’s books, the Lord of the Rings. One can see why this place could be an inspiration for some mystical land.
