The Dark Tree...

Grown between rocks on top of an abandoned fortress.
Dead, but yet proud with branches reaching for the sky..

The Dark Tree - captured on a rainy day, using infraRed technology and slight tone corrections in Photoshop.

Thanks for watching & thanks for your support

Hi x-horizon
I am writing a synopsis for my final exam, about the dark side of alcohol and drugs, how it can "dry out" a humans soul and leave it in the darkness. When I fell over your picture here, I thought that it would fit well as a frontcover to my exam-work.

So my question is; may I use your photo here as my front cover? Of course your name (artist name) will be mentioned in the project and a link to your page will be written.

I hope that you'll say yes, because I really like this photo of yours.

Sure, always for a good cause :)

Sadly I don't have the picture in a good resolution anymore - so you'll need to work with what's here.

Good luck and keep me posted how things go :)

Hi x-horizon!

Thank you for letting me borrow your art as a frontcover for my project for the final exam. The exam went really well and I ended up with a 12! That's the same as an 'A', so I'm really proud of it!

Now I'm an fully autorized social - and healthyassistent (assistent nurse it's called other places), finished school last friday.... now I'm just searching for a job and awaits answers from 6 places that I've searched at (a elder home, a department to help elder people in their homes, a rehabiliaching center, the children - and apoplexia department at the hospital, a psychiatry center and a psychiatry hospital) -hope there'll be something soon. *groans*
