May '06 Installment: Nuclear Guardian

The exclusion zone around the Chernobyl nuclear power station is teeming with life. As humans were evacuated from the area 20 years ago, animals moved in. Existing populations multiplied and species not seen for decades, such as the lynx and eagle owl, began to return.

“Nuclear Guardian” is inspired by a heart-breaking story of how animal life has started to return to the area that was once irradiated by the Chernobyl nuclear meltdown.

    Part of me would like to know how you create the images.. but then there’s another part of me that’s just content simply admiring the finished work.

    Nice work Joen.

    Thanks a lot. As for the how, you know you only have to ask… (That said, I know I have a pretty bad habit of saying “Wallpapers on the way” and forget about it, but hey).
