While doing research for a story set in Kiev (Kyive), Ukraine, I came across the photograph of this amazing tree. Since I love seeing what Photoshop filters can do to enhance photographs, I tried them on this wonderful old tree.

“Grünewald’s Oak Age: 800-900 years, named after the famous painter Matthias Grünewald who used to draw fantasy trees.”
