    The Dimholt Road (rank 260 IAPLC 2014)

    The inspiration for this scape, as you might have guessed from the title, came from the Lord of the Rings. For the general plan I used yet another of my derbyshire photos.

    A more conventional Iwagumi (Final shots @ 22 weeks)

    Hi Folks Feeling a little bored with my current scape, I started to play around with a box seiryu stone i'd had for a while. My last few scapes have had low laying hardscapes, so I fancied doing something much taller. After several trial arrangements the rocks kept returning to the classic 3...

    The evolution of a scape

    Hi Guys After the trees in fangorn forest met their demise (not via a gang of marauding orcs but at the hands of a frustrated aquascaper), I decided to replace them with some rocks. Obviously with the plants already in place, this is not the ideal time to be hardscaping, but as I already...
