The Quintessential 'Lord of the Rings' Movie Shots

The Fellowship of the Ring
Book Two, Chapter II (The Council of Elrond)
Like "Lord of the Rings" in the banner above, these pages were designed to be viewed in the 'Flat Brush' font.  If your computer doesn't show them that way, right click on this link and save the file to your 'C:\WINDOWS\FONTS' folder.

Click on any of the small 'thumbnail' images bordered with WHITE and a window with a larger version of that image will 'pop-up'.  Click on the 'X' in its upper-right corner to close it when you're done.

NOTE:  The small images bordered in GOLD are not available in larger versions.
Chapter II:  The Council of Elrond


<- Boromir / Boromir arriving ->

Rivendell, also called Imladris, is the setting.
Assembled by Elrond to decide the fate of
the Ring, the Council represents all the free
peoples of Middle-earth:  Elves, Humans,
Hobbits, Dwarves and Wizards





Frodo is introduced to the Council
(note - no seat for him yet)

'The Ring' is placed on the table
in the center of the chamber

<- Elrond and Gandalf / Boromir ->

<- Elrond's sons on either side of him
     (Elladan and Elrohir)

The Council of Elrond
Gandalf on far side, center (standing)
Aragorn on near side, left (seated)

Gandalf speaks to the council
(Frodo behind him on the left)
The following section contains images related to the tale that Gandalf told at the Council of Elrond, about his imprisonment in Orthanc at the hands of Saruman (and possibly some even deeper background).  There are further images from the Council of Elrond later on this page - scroll down to see them.
  Saruman the White...


Gandalf and Saruman stroll
together in happier times

...Drinking with Gandalf  


Saruman on the floor by the table
(and reaching for Gandalf?)

Saruman vanquishes Gandalf

with a wave of his staff

and sends him flying

for more images of Saruman, Orthanc and the Palantir


Gandalf speaks to the council,
Elves (Lorien?) behind on the right
(same shot as above, different version)

Wood Elves at the Council
(Legolas on the left, the Ring on the table)


Frodo at the Council  
(sitting behind Gandalf, above right)   

Dwarves at the Council
(Gimli with red beard, Gloin with white)


Boromir pleads:  'The weapon of the
enemy is a gift - let us use it against him'

Aragorn replies:  'You cannot
wield it - none of us can'

Legolas adds:  'The ring
must be destroyed'

The Fellowship is formed;
Nine Walkers against Nine Riders
The Nine Members of The Fellowship
(Although few, if any, of these images are actually from this chapter, they make a nice set to put here)
