[The stones that hold the stream edge together sell the illusion.]

The Whispering Crane Institute was originally formed to act as the umbrella organization for the Philosophy of Design Symposium, and other seminars and workshops given by Rick Anderson and Richard L. Dube’. In the year 2000 WCI became a sole proprietorship owned by Rick Anderson.
Today the WCI provides design and consultation services for Landscape Contractors, acts as a Green Industry think tank, and provides training for others in the form of workshops, seminars, and individual consulting. The WCI also provides written material, opinions, case-studies and how-to articles for industry trade magazines.

The placement and use of weathered stone vs broken stone on the stream border may be a key to the natural feel of this stream bed.
I appreciate your use of the natural stream constriction and fall of water in the upper left of the photo. You have achieved a natural looking flow of water into a pool.
I enjoy your work and learn a great deal from it.
