Let me start by explaining what aquascaping is. To cut a long explanation short, it is an art form that consists of someone creating an underwater landscape that looks like it would on land. A sort of post-apocalyptic viewpoint, only much more beautiful…

I just loved the darkness of this image. Imagine a scary woodland underwater and this is exactly what it would look like, only done in miniature form.

Not all of these works of art are made to look realistic. Some have a fantasy theme like this one. You could almost imagine this being in a Sci-Fi program!

Some of these works of art even have underwater waterfalls! How on earth do they do that? Watching the video in the image link above might just give you a clue.

Since the Hobbit as been away things have changed massively in the Shire. Opps, my mistake. It is just amazing, underwater Aquascaping art!

While I do love the natural ones I think the ones where a little bit of model scenery is added are much better. This looks just like someone’s garden underwater!

You might think this was taken is some far away woodland, but it really is underwater and all made by the artist.

It is not often you get to see fish swimming through a desert, but with this style of art just about anything is possible!

Adding a landscape background is cheating a little bit, but if you click on this image above you will get to see the attention to detail this artist has given it!

2 – Slate Break

When rocks like slate and other things are used in aquariums they seem to take on an early realistic feel. I wonder if they have to design them in the water rather than add the water and fish later on.

For me, this is just too realistic to believe! If I hadn’t seen the video of them making it I would have said this image was photoshopped. If this is what the world will look like when the ice-caps melt thing don’t seem so bad at all!
