Socotra

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).

As always, Adobe Photoshop only, with little help of magical Wacom tablet.

I saw this on another website months ago, and couldn't find it because they'd cut off the watermark. Glad I did, your stuff is awesome.
Also, sorry for spamming you with liking all your stuff.... I know there's a lot of notifications there.
