Qui n’a jamais rêvé d’intégrer la « Communauté de l’anneau », rien que pour se balader dans les radieux paysages de la « terre du milieu » ! Blasé de voir des photos, certes superbes mais identiques de la Nouvelle-Zélande, le photographe néo-zélandais Akhil Suhas a décidé de les twister un peu.

Sur son compte Instagram, il explique ainsi que son projet photographique intitulé #Gandalftheguide est une visite de la « terre du milieu » menée par le légendaire Gandalf, célèbre magicien des romans de Tolkien.

hikes that leave you speechless (and breathless) with #GandalfTheGuide 🚶 The last couple of days have been a bit overwhelming with all the article features and messages I've received from all over the 🌎, I really appreciate it. Also, thank you to all the new and old followers who helped me reach 10k, a huge milestone for me! While my cross country road trip might be over, it doesn't mean that there won't be more adventures, so stay tuned 🙂

Longue toge grise et chapeau pointu sur la tête, le modèle du photographe se balade donc ainsi, au gré des paysages les plus mythiques du pays. Un angle nouveau et rafraîchissant, d’autant que la minuscule silhouette de Gandalf, qui se détache dans les panoramas, permet de rendre compte de l’échelle des paysages.

#GandalfTheGuide may have dyed his hair blonde (see it?) cos he wants to feel young again 🤔. Thoughts? if you're ever heading to Milford Sound, pop by Lake Marian en route cos it's beyond epic! Plus, you might run into cool people like @youngadventuress

The Galactic Wizard, #GandalfTheGuide 🌌 I can't tell you how long I've been wanting to shoot Gandalf with the Milky Way and it finally happened this morning when I went on a lovely mission with @trex.photography @talman & @poolsidepeople to Te Arai Point!

witnessing the turquoise water at hokitika gorge with #GandalfTheGuide has definitely been a highlight of our journey through middle-earth. a little while ago, @purenewzealand featured some snippets of my journey with gandalf on their facebook page, to celebrate the 15 year anniversary of 🇳🇿 being home to middle-earth. I tried linking it in my bio, but it wouldn't work - so head over to their facebook to see the photos (including some exclusive shots that I haven't posted here)
