Wow...beautiful...
...but we don't do so badly either. Next to Mount Fuji National Park (Japan also) the Peak district national Park (covering an area of around 1440 km2) is the most visited in the world with an estimated number of 10 to 20 million visitors/year ...

Amazing! No wonder there are so many successful aquascapers there and now I can see, where Amano got his inspiration!

Wow this thread is getting interesting, like Antoni mentions, both this and Yakushima island absolutely reflect their associated aquascaping styles...unless Edvet modelled his offering out of Plasticine:shifty:

Another typical dutch scene nowadays, watch the neat grouping:

Nice carpet plant, but they need to hide all those cables and get some glass ware. Those korilinaz look a bit on the big side.:)[DOUBLEPOST=1395246990][/DOUBLEPOST]Paulo those pictures are great. To be there to breath the air and take in the surroundings would be breath taking.:)
