Friðsælt Falls by Brother Steven, on Flickr

Created for the Inspirational Lego Build contest hosted by the Inspirational Lego group.

What inspires me?

The harmony, balance, and majesty of all that I observe in nature.
Whenever I begin to create something that requires landscape, I always look to the original masterpiece. Whether in stone, the flow of water, animal life, or foliage.

Please check out the awesome video on YouTube for an in-depth look at this build.

I love the fact that the water is made to look like and actual river in a forest - not so clear and a lil muddy. Also the Deer look great too

The organic base of this creation, landscaping, and color selections are very nice. I particularly like the brown under the trans clear plates. Using so many transclear cheese bricks for the rapids seems a bit out of place with the other texture. I wonder if mixing more 1X trans plates other than the 1x1 round plates would improve the look?

Really nice work with the dim colors here. I also think the water works well here. The animals are really cool as well.
