'The ridge upon which the companions stood went down steeply before their feet. Below it twenty fathoms or more, there was a wide and rugged shelf which ended suddenly in the brink of a sheer cliff: the East Wall of Rohan. So ended the Emyn muil, and the green plains of the Rohirrim stretched away before them to the edge of sight.'

JRR Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers: Book III, Chapter 2: The Riders of Rohan

Yay, updates, finally!
I really like the athmosphere you've managed to convey with the composition of this one. A plain that is somewhat bleak-looking even, yet majestic in its vastness.. Great job.

Only one comment? What happens? This is my most, most favourite scene from The Lord of the Rings and you depicted it exactly as I imagined it! Tolkien's descriptions are extraordinal. I always feel like being there when I read this chapter. So when I looked at this picture, I felt like it all must be true, because you saw the same landscape as I saw.
