Gandalf, who shows us the beauty of Middle Earth, is not a dream but a reality thanks to the Instagram account of a young photographer.

Akhil Suhas, it seems, was a little tired of the beautiful, but rather similar, photos of Australia and New Zealand that run on the networks all day long. But is this ras-le-bol a valid reason to stop capturing the fantastic landscapes of Oceania? For Suhas, the answer is no, just find a twist.

On his Instagram account, the photographer defines his project as a visit to Middle Earth with #GandalfTheGuide (ie, a Lord of the Rings world tour with the “Gandalf Guide”). In the midst of these grandiose landscapes of New Zealand is a Gandalf in a suit.

A playful and aesthetic tribute

This touch of humor does not detract from the beauty of the landscapes. On the contrary, it makes us rediscover it from a new angle. Placing a human form in this way makes it possible to account for the scale of the panoramas, their magnitude. The majestic air, Gandalf watches the land, offering in addition an additional set of prospects. Sometimes it takes a little time to look for the old man’s silhouette in the midst of the colors, the shimmering of the water or the mists around.
