Beautiful! I wish there was a bigger version so i could sit and stare at it, full-screen :) the background is fantastic, even though it blends with the subject a little bit. We used to call these plants Lego Sticks, because you can take them apart at the joints and build huge ones...

This is a great photo. Works quite well as a wallpaper even as it is. Is the quote by Carl jung by any chance? It sounds like him...

Again, good job. :D

Thanks! :thanks: I'm not sure who the quote is from, the site I found it on didn't have a source listed (and they normally do). :)

Well, the shadow is one of the archetypes of Jungian psychology.

The quote it reminded me of was 'As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light of meaning in the darkness of mere being.'

Guess that's what made me think of Carl Jung. :)
