    The the Wabi-Kusa is excellent, try different lighting to remove the shadows on the slate.

    A few well positioned table lamps could do the trick for you.

    Hi All,The Grandson and i went for a walk in the forest :smile-new: And on our long walk about we found this old rotting bit of a tree. And some other bits and bobs
    I liked the shape and had an idea for a new W-K. When we got home i soaked the wood for a day just to clear out any bugs.
    Planting is going to be simple, moss a little bit here and there a small Anubias Crypt pava and just a touch of HC Cuba. I have planted up the DW with moss and i will let this grow for a few weeks then plant up the rest A couple of photos with out the planted moss

    Roy that is a beautiful piece of wood you found, I am sure you will find good use for it.
    What else did you find and relocate.

    Today I wanted a piece of wood with Lichen all I had to was walk across the road to an old plumb tree.
