A Place in the Sun

"There's a place in the sun
Where there's hope for ev'ryone
Where my poor restless heart's gotta run
There's a place in the sun
And before my life is done
Got to find me a place in the sun"

-Stevie Wonder

This build is the reason I haven't posted a "real" build in the past few days. I built this MOC for the Alamance Arts Council Brick Building Competition. I was very fortunate that Sean and Steph Mayo decided to go as well. I had a blast seeing them and their MOCs in person. I couldn't believe it when I arrived at the event and saw their builds. Sean and Steph inspire me greatly and I would like to dedicate this build to them. Thank you Sean and Steph for being so inspiring and awesome!

You can view more photos on my Flickr.

God Bless,
-Greyson

I like the multi-level terrain, and the trees. The setting is arraigned nicely; there is a lot to look at. Well done.

Great job man! You're turning into quite a builder. And I agree with Will, love the details and everything. :)

Love the vast array of colors, the bridge is neat as well.

I get an Excalibur-esque vibe from this scene for some reason, not that that's a bad thing at all. :)

Not sure I've seen that bridge technique before, I'll have to try it. Thanks!
