The fall beside the house of Dior

The shimmering, glittering waterfall that ran beside the house of Dior Eluchíl in Ossiriand, probably part of the stream of the River Adurant. Lanthir Lamath was most famous as the source of the name of Dior's daughter Elwing. whose name - meaning 'Star-spray' - was inspired by the falling water on the night of stars when she was born.
