OH MY GOD! KOTUKUNUI sent me these this morning:

I have some photos to contribute to the LOTR visual record. The photos that Tehanu and Cameraman took of the Matamata set are actually the site carpark. The actual set construction work is going on in the small valley below. (Not visible from the ground)

HOBBITON1.JPG shows the general layout of the dell, lake and general site.

HOBBITON2.JPG shows a bit more of the construction works. The aforementioned carpark is at the top of the photo. The sun was quite low so shadows are a problem, but I will obtain better images at a later date.

You can use the alias KOTUKUNUI as your source if you want to publish the photos on your site.
