My uncles pond (newspaper article)

I can't believe I haven't shared any pics of my uncle's pond. You guys might get a kick out of it. It's actually like a mote that goes around the front of their house. I think he had to drill a secondary well to fill it.

Whoever took the pics didn't do it justice. The bridge that goes over it should have been pictured. They don't show the longer, left side. It's actually flowing like a river from one end to the other. All be it slowly.

I'd tried to convince him that they needed to add some substrate and some plants on the bottom. He's more into the koi. I think the lilies are my aunts idea.

You should go take some more photos to help do it justice (and share with us)
I'd encourage or some lilies and other plants that can grow out form below water, check out the mosaic plant, that ones pretty cool

Whats the depth of the pond?

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.

Ya, the next time we visit I'll do my own photo shoot. We've been meaning to go up there and have him take us fishing. He owns a logging company and they got shut down due to the fire risk being too high at the moment. I've got the next week off, who knows.

It's about 6' deep (maybe 5') in the center as I recall. We had to stand on something to get the statue up on its perch.

Yea those pics are pretty bad, looks like the reporter took it on an iPhone, where's the wide angle/focus/contrast? Take me with you, I'll take (slightly better) pics!
