My Photography
Off topic post, recently a bit active in photo shooting more than aquascape. The reason why I do that is to understand the nature, like Mr Takashi Amano does. So is a helpful skill to develop our aquascaping and some nature behaviour. The place I am staying has such a limited stone scape, but worth for deep in study of the formation. If you like my photography, please drop a 'LIKE' on my link. Thank you very much.

I have been out of the loop as far as aquascaping is concerned for quite some time. And as I can see, this is one of the best results I have ever seen. I'm astonished at these peoples' talent. I'm simply awestruck.
