I've used this to for the icon of my group :iconkitholme: I hope that is alright.
If it is a problem then just let me know and I will remove it.

It's a fantastic picture and perfectly describes the capital city of my original world.  Kitholme is a neo-victorian/steampunk city built on the edge of a 300' waterfall by humans under the guiding auspices of a race of Immortal lizardmen called the Kith.

that would actually be a very awesome way to get limitless energy, from the constant flow of the waterfall. Never have a blackout, lol

This structure is isolated from the rest of the country. It directs the flow of water and controls the water supply of the city, which is why the government also works here. Their days are not broken up into hours and minutes but are dictated by bells rung on the bell tower that indicate when water can be used. One clang indicates time for people to brush their teeth and wash their face; two clangs tell people to get ready for boiling food to make all the meals for that day; three clangs means it is time for their daily bathroom break; four clangs release the water for people to wash their dishes; five clangs indicate time for showering. In this way, not only does the government control the supply of water but also the schedules of people and their obedience to the government through a punishment/reward system with water. On the outside, the government building is rich and glamorous under the glorious setting sun, but the inside is haunted by the cries of freedom from the people.

i love this painting :icontearplz:
