Are you... a lion?
sssssssh, don't tell anyone
So I saw your first picture and I was like Holy fuck thats definitely the mountain that used for mordor in LOTR...and then you mentioned it later in your post. So the question is, is that really where they filmed LOTR?
No, it isn't. All of LOTR was filmed in New Zealand, a place I would love to visit once, but it's so fucking expensive to fly there, so I guess that won't happen anytime soon. But I agree, some of the scenery perfectly fits LOTR. Especially Mordor and Emyn Muil
