“But when King Elessar gave up his life Legolas followed at last the desire of his heart and sailed over Sea. (…)
(…) We have heard tell that Legolas took Gimli Glóin’s son with him because of their great friendship, greater than any that has been between Elf and Dwarf. If this is true, then it is strange indeed: that a Dwarf should be willing to leave Middle-earth for any love, or that the Eldar should receive him, or that the Lords of the West should permit it. But it is said that Gimli went also out of desire to see again the beauty of Galadriel; and it may be that she, being mighty among the Eldar, obtained this grace for him. More cannot be said of this matter.”

my first try to make an animated gif of a video. I can’t seem to get the colors/quality right… frustrating experience.
At least I got to stare at Jed’s walk for a while ;-) I’m really looking forward to seeing him on stage again at HobbitCon in Germany at Easter.
in case anyone was wondering, this is how Nori walks away afterward.
