In the land of Mordor, where the Shadows lie

When Frodo and Sam approached Mordor, they felt a great dread about land of the dark lord Sauron. LEGO builder Hubba Blöoba has captured those ominous vibes with this fantastic microscale model of the Black Gate, where the hobbits snuck into Sauron’s wasteland. Beneath the gathering stormclouds, the eery glow from Mount Doom is excellently portrayed with a gradient of plates. The shallow depth of field used in photographing this mini model puts the tower of Barad-dûr out of focus, making the scene feel even more realistic.

    Forgive me for being pedantic, but Frodo and Sam came to the Black Gate, but did not slip into Mordor through it. They entered Mordor through Shelob’s lair after turning away from the black gate due to Gollum’s warnings.
