The Hobbit Hill
This time, I try to capture the idyllic atmosphere in The Shire. A
green hill with a round door, a crippled apple tree, and the utility

but The Shire is lush and fertile, and there are quite some of each.
The hill in the back, made up by
sphagnum, is covered in Marimo Algae and a bit of Monte Carlo "bushes". The door
