The Fallen :: HDR

Like they always say, only the fittest survives! i sure don't feel like one right now but rather like the fallen. So tired i need a good night sleep soon :)) anyway its pretty dramatic to see a big fallen tree on an empty part of the lake... i'm sure it takes a bloody strong wind to uproot this fellow in the first place. wishing myself a good night & many sweet dreams.. catch u all soonish ;)
