In Lorien flows the… Withywindle?

14-05 03-0728-7912-63Beneath the eaves of Lothlorien, where no harm, sorrow and time have a hold, there is little need for weapons. A fair maiden walks among flowers clad in armour and carrying a sword that are both ceremonial. And ceremonial is also the barding of her horse, all draped in accordance to the colours and shapes of the Golden Wood. A beauty to behold, although surely if need be, she will use her sword for protection and not just to display it24-5647-6110-0227-01 The steed here is called Steed of Withywindle, and as the name suggests, probably modeled after the stream flowing down the Old Forest. I would have taken the screenshots in the Old Forest if it was not for one, big problem: lighting. The light in there both during daytime and night time is so awful, everything takes a greenish hue that warps the colours horribly, and the only moment in which it is a little less is perhaps dusk, and dusk in lotro passes by fast to leave little time for setting a screenshoot. /shakefist Old Forest, so no Withywindle for the steed. Also, despite the name, in my opinion the steed looks more Lorien style, so I made that the theme to match the rider
