    I couldn't resist posting a pic of this incredible water feature under construction in my area. I would love to be involved in the building of something of this scale. I will post some more pics as the construction progresses.

    This is part of the entrance of a new housing development. I can't wait to see the houses.

    Pitzer's is the the landscape general contractor. I don't know if they subcontracted part or all of the feature to a specialized contractor or not. You are only seeing about 1/3 or 1/4 of the total feature in the pic. There is a huge tiered waterfall at the top of the developement that starts it all.

    Nice boulders.

    I like that kind of look a lot better than the massive feature I posted that a guy did out this way with angular basalt rock.

    The rounded contours are a nice style.

    looks like a lot of spendy rock for that part of the country.

    looks like a lot of spendy rock for that part of the country. Oh and the clarity a color quality of your pic is terrific... what camera did you use?

    I haven't had a chance to get past the project lately. I will try to get a couple of updated pics this week. I am sure they are getting close to completing the feature.

    I am sure the rock probably came from Colorado, and with transportation I am sure it was pricey.

    The camera I used is just a Canon Powershot A610. When I purchased it, it was kind of a middle of the road point and shoot with some advanced features. I probably had it on "landscape" mode which reduces the aperture size for finer details which worked well on this sunny day.

    The feature is completed, but I didn't have my camera the day I swung by. I will do that soon.
