For me it reminds me more of Gondolin, the Hidden City, from the Silmarillion.

look up 'Fall of Gondolin'.
This is what happens to it after Melkor discovers its location thanks to Maeglin's betrayal to the city. One of my favorite tales of The Silmarillion.

yes however Gondolin was built on the top of a plateau or mesa not on the side of one. It is a sad tale, and part of the history that were in both the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings, after all Orcrest and Glamdrin were both from Gondolin.... and I am sure Sting is too though it probably didn't get much of a mention... :D

Oooh Nice!!! Love Imagine FX but have to choose carefully what month to purchase (due to budget). The use of light and color is astounding, particularly the cloud highilights which emphasise the difference between natural and Mordor light. :) Is this part of a workshop?
