Two Towers by joerossbach Two Towers by joerossbach
Yup, I am a Lord of the Rings geek! This was a particularly colorless yet dramatic evening on the coast of Olympic National Park!

Um, Mr. Rossbach, I just wanted to point out that the Two Towers of Tolkien fame are not in fact on the ocean. You are of course referring to Minas Ithil, Tower of the Moon, later named Minas Morgul after it fell to the forces of Sauron and became the abode of the Ringwraiths; and Minas Anor, Tower of the Sun, later named Minis Tirith, Tower of the Guard. Anyone who is a true fan and expert of Middle Earth geography would know that neither tower resides by the sea. I suggest you brush up on your Middle-Earth lore before making such a critical error again. [Pushes tape-bound broken glasses up in righteous indignation.]

Holy crap, I can't believe I remember all this garbage. I am such a loser.

Holy crap Plant! You are the true master of dork! Next time we are in the field together for an extended trip maybe you can spend less time bitching and moaning and get me caught up on middle Earth geography.

It would be my pleasure, although you must call me by my Middle Earth name of Feaglorfinfaldawe, which in high elvish means "Dorky Spaz Who Somehow Still Gets Laid By Smokin' Hot Chicks."

I think it actually means "Dorky Spaz Who lies about getting Laid By Smokin' Hot Chicks"

I've known you long enough to speak the truth my friend!

That's cool. I like how the same place can be shot so completely differently, and produce such beautiful photos.

Amazing picture! I am curious, what settings did you use for this picture? And did you use any filter?
