Welcome to the magical Forest of


Pull up a tree stump and commune with the elves... okay, okay... maybe there won't actually be any elves...

...but maybe.... squirrels!

A squirrel peeks out from the crook of a tree.

And there could be...

Poised for flight, our chipmunk watches from the tree trunk.
Einstein the Owl

perhaps an owl or a gull...

A Stratford (Ontario) gull

And if we're REALLY lucky we might see a mouse!!

KooKoo the Clown swings Mickey Mouse in the air.

We'll stop for elevenses with any hobbits we meet.

Frodo relaxes in a tree.

You never know who you'll meet in lothlaurien...

Frodo and Legolas.

...perhaps even an outlaw or two.

Robin (in the) Hood with the young outlaw Crispin the Dull.

lothlaurien can take us as far as Middle Earth and the One Ring (and elves!) or as near as a Sherwood Forest visit to the Robin in the Hood Festival .

Lothlaurien Gallery Virtual Button Thumbnail Collage for Lothlaurien Gallery Robin in the Hood Retrospective

The Lothlaurien Gallery's first viewing area was the online Photo Album which opened with the “Robin in the Hood Restrospective” show. This retrospective exhibition features images taken over four years at the popular medieval festival.

The Lothlaurien Gallery Photo Album is the first of three viewing areas being hosted by the Gallery. The next Gallery Room scheduled to open in September of 2009 will feature photographers, beginning with the long awaited "Karsh Korner". The Third viewing room will exhibit artwork.

Lothlaurien’s got a brand new blog!

Lothlaurien’s Lore is intended as a place to discuss digital imaging and photography, as well as interesting things that that are happening around Lothlaurien and sometimes things that happened before there was a blog. The occasional movie review will most likely find its way here as well, we’ll just have to see how things go.

So pop on over and visit Lothlaurien’s Lore on Wordpress.

I ike large computer screens, yet most websites (even good ones!) are designed for small screens. Like these:

small webspace displayed big screen small webspace in big screen small webspace in big screen small webspace in big screen

But wide screens are becoming the standard, so one of my goals is to provide a fluid website which will fill any sized screen. So large or wide screens will be fully utilized:

It's more difficult to achieve, but I think it worth the effort. Please let me know if you experience any difficulties! Thanks!


As my old pal the Friendly Giant used to say,

I know about web page creation
I learned from

HTML and CSS tutorials, references, and articles & SOBAC Microcomputer Services

Amazingly I learned enough from these two excellent resources to be able to create the wonderful web worlds of Lothlaurien!

If you are looking for an exceptional gift, a Magic Photo might be just the thing. Check out the Lothlaurien PHOTOSYNTHESIS pages. You'll be amazed at what we can do.
