I took this photo a long time ago and just found it recently while looking through the archives. Thought I'd spend some time processing, and here it is! I think I remember many more birds being up there until I got my camera out, and then most of them flew away.
"...he could see the Tower of Cirith Ungol in all its strength. The horn that he had seen from the other side was only its topmost turret. Its eastern face stood up in three great tiers from a shelf in the mountain-wall far below; its back was to the great cliff behind, from which it jutted out in pointed bastions, one above the other, diminishing as they rose, with sheer sides of cunning masonry that looked north-east and south-east. About the lowest tier, two hundred feet below where Sam now stood, there was a battlemented wall enclosing a narrow court. Its gate, upon the near south-eastern side, opened on a broad road, the outer parapet of which ran upon the brink of a precipice, until it turned southward and went winding down into the darkness to join the road that came over the Morgul Pass. Then on it went through a jagged rift in the Morgai out into the valley of Gorgoroth and away to Barad-dûr. The narrow upper way on which Sam stood leapt swiftly down by stair and steep path to meet the main road under the frowning walls close to the Tower-gate."
If you like the texture, please feel free to use it however you like. I would love to see what you do with it though, so it would be nice if you comment here with a link to your image. This texture was created using different photographs and different layer blending modes in Photoshop.
