Amazing landscape/waterfall

Postby Bruce N H » Tue Jul 23, 2013 6:16 am

Hey,

This is labeled as being from last year's Fanwelt, but this Flickr user just posted it today, and I don't remember seeing it last year. Anyway, someone at Fanwelt built this amazing waterfall.

I thought it looked familiar so I had a trawl through my flickr comments and it does seem to be from Fanwelt 2012. It's incredible, if anyone has any more info on it I'd love to hear more.

What element was used to make the falling water? The full view is zoomed out too far to tell.

I think it's just a whole lot of 1x2 transparent plates with lighting behind the waterfall. The builder, Jorg Kempe, has a shop that sells custom LEGO lighting elements, so I'm assuming he used his own lighting system.

This is one of the most beautiful sceneries I have ever seen. I know what the waterfall is made of, but I would be interested in knowing how exactly the pieces are set up in the water to give it that rich, deep blue color.

Pretty easy to get that color by just SNOT'ing 2x2 dark trans-blue bricks, as can be seen in my "Feasting Hall of Greng" from a year or two ago:
