Hoping that everyone here had a peaceful and happy Winter Solstice, that all those celebrating enjoy their festivities and that those who choose to refrain enjoy the quiet. This is dedicated to all those who have nothing to celebrate or lack the means to do so, who are lonely and isolated, or who are troubled and afraid. May 2007 bring everyone here, and every creature on Earth, peace within and without, growing wisdom and pleasant dreams. Y Blwyddyn Newydd Dda i Bawb! -cfr (xfractint, gimp)

I too, see silhouetted trees by moonlight. I also see colored pinwheels within the trees that sparkle like tinsel or adornments on a Christmas tree. It's as though the large star is charging life into the outstretched tree limbs. The bigger spirals add a special whimsical, magical feel. The perfect shade of cobolt blue "sky", and smaller stars, bring the whole mystical, magical piece together. One cannot help but smile when viewing this image. I would not change a thing, other than perhaps making the large star a brighter white (but that's just IMO).

Lovely work, and Happy New Year! :)

Finely made design. I thought this was a holiday picture but it sounds like it can be used as wallpaper anytime...I like that! The trees, swirls & little designs are wonderful and the colors are stunning and full of joy. Beautiful the way the trees point up to the brilliant star. Excellent job you've done cfr :*))

I need to catch up on things so can't comment too much. But I love all of your fine images. I might be lurking in the background :)

Yes, this is amazing - I saw the trees and the night sky first, and then realized they were fractals. When it works out like this, it's good stuff.
