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

   Down to a sunless sea.

So twice five miles of fertile ground

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.
