Certainly the distances had now all become hazy and deceptive [...]. But even as he spoke he turned his gaze eastwards, and and he saw that on that side the hills were higher and looked down upon them; and all those hills were crowned with green mounds, and on some were standing stones, pointing upwards like jagged teeth out of green gums.

As to how this is a fantasy landscape, the title should relate it clearly enough, even if the landscape itself is comprised of different parts of Dartmoor which in itself is a very real landscape. But then Tolkien's books are rather explicitly depicting a version of England (and Eriador more so than other landscapes) so that seems like a very justified choice.
