A railroad aquascape I found interesting.

Not mine...Just ran across it on Imgur and thought others might like to see. There are step-by-step pictures of the build.

I thought so, too. I like the forced perspective with the railroad tracks--really well done. And the whole "abandoned" atmosphere with the overgrowth of plants.



The one thing that worries me about it is that the builder obtained the aged/brown color of the wood by burning it. I would guess that the burned layer would shed off in the water eventually. If I try to do something like this, I think I would try to find a naturally dark-colored wood to start.
