An Ode to Tolkien’s The Hobbit: ‘The Last Light of Durin’s Day’

The dwarfs of Erebor finally return home.

My ode to J.R.R. Tolkien’s ‘The Hobbit’ and the tale of the dwarfs of Erebor under the Lonely Mountains. ‘The Last Light of Durin’s Day’ refers to the dwarf’s last chance to reenter and reclaim their home of Erebor which has been confiscated by Smaug, a fire-drake(dragon!) from the North. This ‘last light’ is meant to show them the keyhole to gain entrance into Erebor, but alas, it won’t last forever! If you’ve not seen the movie(s), I highly recommend them. The scene this photo refers to is way more exciting, but then I’m no film maker, just a humble blogger and sometimes photographer who digs ‘The Lord of the Ring’ stories! K’lee L. © 2015
