Socotra or Soqotra is  a small archipelago in the Indian Ocean off the coast of the Horn of Africa. Socotra is one of the most isolated landforms on Earth, and it  is considered the jewel of biodiversity. Surveys have revealed that more than a third of the 800 or  so plant species of Socotra are found nowhere else. Shown on this wallpaper are the Dragon's Blood Tree (Dracaena cinnabari) and the Bottle Tree (adenium obesum). More at Wikipedia As always, Adobe Photoshop only, with little help of magical Wacom tablet. Thanks!

Soqotra is wonderful, and this pays homage to the amazing life there. I especially like the patterns under the ground, they are lovely

I mean - look at them! I can't take my eyes off the pink blossoms (or leaves)! And the green leaves of the large tree - how alive is that colour and shape! Wow...

Xavier Robin 27 September 2008
At first sight I found it so-so, strange, artificial... then I read the small accompanying text. I really love those pictures with a true story behind ! Now this is definitely one of my favourite (plus I need to go to Socotra to see it) :)
Xavier Robin 27 September 2008
Oh, I forgot to mention, it's not all in the mind, see for instance ;-)
