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!

I agree with Richard. My Vladstudio lifetime membership was the best money i ever spent! I am so very happy with your amazing work and talent! Vlad you are very inspirational & wonderful!

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) :)

I think this is one of your best yet. The textures are amazing - it looks like a photograph of an etched litho plate.
