Quote from Lord of the Rings, full text below:
PIPPIN: I didn't think it would end this way.

GANDALF: End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass, and then you see it.

PIPPIN: What? Gandalf? See what?

GANDALF: White shores, and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.

PIPPIN: Well, that isn't so bad.

GANDALF: No. No, it isn't.


I've always loved that analogy, and it is what came to mind with the challenge. The processing isn't *quite* what i wanted, but the image still conveys (to me) the sense of scenery that I envisioned when i first read those words, many, many years ago...

This image appeared about 20% brighter on the monitor I used to edit....the blue was a little more vivid and it felt slightly more optimistic.
I've gone back and corrected my befuddled monitor, hopefully nobody goes back and messes with it again.
