IntPiPoMo – With Pleasure Domes and Sunless Seas

So I’d almost decided that I wasn’t going to bother posting my last shots because December had all but snuck up on me but a chance remark in guild chat provided the inspiration I was lacking. On route to kill the Lich King someone started quoting Coleridge and in that moment, this post was born. So with apologies to the poet and thanks to a guild mate, I’d like to present the Azeroth version of Kubla Khan which takes me from picture number 40 all the way to 50.
 

In Xanadu did Kubla Khan

A stately pleasure-dome decree:

Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
WoWScrnShot_030913_160157
Through caverns measureless to man
WoWScrnShot_112013_211652
   Down to a sunless sea.
WoWScrnShot_111113_195706
So twice five miles of fertile ground
WoWScrnShot_080313_190608
With walls and towers were girdled round;
WoWScrnShot_111612_003035
And there were gardens bright with sinuous rills,
WoWScrnShot_112913_200700
Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree;
WoWScrnShot_082113_205116
And here were forests ancient as the hills,
WoWScrnShot_110813_224950
Enfolding sunny spots of greenery.

IntPiPoMo – Trees and Plants

Today’s installment of IntPiPoMo is loosely categorized by plants and other such foliage.

IntPiPoMo 2013 – The Colour Purple

Three years ago, Angelya suggested a screenshot challenge with a difference. Instead of writing 50 000 words, why not post 50 screenshots within the month of November. This year, the reins have been passed to Jojo but other than that, nothing has changed.

I did briefly consider doing this and Tycertank’s a Screenshot a Day in tandem and then that little taunting Gnome voice which lurks in my subconscious decided screw it, it’s all or nothing.

So for my first submissions, I’d like to present the following shots, all roughly linked by the colour purple.
