Natural Inspiration for Iwagumi / Rockscape

Postby abhirup » Tue Oct 25, 2016 10:54 pm

Hi All,

Recently I had the opportunity of Visiting the Pembrokeshire District in Wales with some of my Office Colleagues. We mainly visited the Western and south western beaches in the Pembrokeshire district. While doing so we came across some stunning rock formations in these beaches. I am sure the following pics will trigger some new scaping ideas in all your minds.

In one of the beaches we found a small freshwater stream joining the ocean. That steam was full of aquatic plants.. anybody would like to guess the names of these plants?

These are basically old red Sandstones.. The texture of all these type of rocks was brilliant.
