Scoop Images: Castles & Tents In A Quarry

Scoop’s anonymous Hobbit photographer has been busy again snapping away at Lord of The Rings sets, this time at the most photographed set of them all, the Haywards Hill (Dry Creek) quarry. Filming at the site is now fully underway with scenes of orcs storming the castle at night depicted on the front page of the Evening Post yesterday. Peter Jackson’s $360 million Lord of The Rings trilogy is the largest film project ever undertaken in New Zealand.
