"Consider it: every person you have ever met, every person will suffer the loss of his friends and family. All are going to lose everything they love in this world. Why would one want to be anything but kind to them in the meantime?"

World of the Ring by Jian Guo

Middle-Earth seems like it’s a pretty happening place: plenty of exotic locales to explore, elves handing out gifts, trees to ride when your footses ache, and treasure available only to those courageous enough to take it. If it ever existed in a Tolkien novel or note, then Jian has probably drawn it: his jaw-droppingly resplendent masterpieces tell just as enthralling a story as the novels they emulate… though in considerably fewer words. The lead image: “A Long Adventure with a Hobbit” is available in print form at Jian’s DeviantArt.

"Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don’t mean to do harm; but the harm does not interest them. Or they do not see it, or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves."

T.S. Eliot

"Sometimes it’s better to leave while you’re still ahead. Sometimes it’s better to leave before you get unloved."

"Sometimes we need someone to simply be there. Not to fix anything, or to do anything in particular - but just to let us feel that we are cared for and supported."

"The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed."

Sunrises and Sunsets by Maxime and Florent Courty.

We are two brothers and landscape photographers based in central France, 60km east from the famous ancient volcano called “Puy de Dôme”. We practice landscape and nature photography with a singular approach, our purpose is to celebrate nature’s wonders, in an endless quest for beauty. First, we search for the most interesting atmospheric conditions. We consider weather to be very important in landscape photography, it can totally transform the landscape depending on the mood nature has. So, we learnt some basic meteorological skills, in order to predict when the weather will be interesting, when magic scenes could happen. We carefully study our chosen location to seek out the best vantage point for sunrise/sunset. Of course, it’s hard to predict when a good scene will happen and there are sometimes nasty surprises. But through our persistence and determination we always end up satisfied. Each one of the great scenes we see could be hardly imagined before we live them, especially the most impressive ones. This is a strong source of motivation that will ever keep us searching for the most epic moment.
