My entry to the LotR contest over on LEGO.com. I chose to build the Forbidden Pool because, to the extent of my knowledge, there is only one other representation of it on MOCpages. I thought it would be a nice little challenge :)
About this creation
Farimir and his men watching Frodo draw in Gollum from the Pool.
A last minute modification. I figured I might as well cram in as much detail as possible.
Woah! Very nice. The shape of the pool is great. I can't imagine how this would look with a waterfall. Too bad you ran out of bricks. You have a chance at the contest. Maybe I will put out a entry to even the playing field.

Excellent work, good luck in the contest! The landscaping's superb, one of your best creations.
Thanks for the comment! It took a lot of thinking and testing to get the landscape exactly how I wanted it. I'm still not completely satisfied with it. I feel like there's something missing. Any ideas?

I like that water! The whole landscape is very nice. Also, great choice for a scene to recreate.
Thanks for the comment! As I said in the description, I chose this scene because of how few LEGO representations there were of it. I had actually hoped to make it larger and complete the waterfall but, with a lack of time and trans 1x2 plates, I was unable to make that dream a reality. I might keep this build for a while and see if I can get some more pieces and complete the waterfall though...
