Amrita Tree

Amrita is a Sanskrit term for an elixir that grants immortality. In Hindu mythology the ambrosia comes from the churning of the sea, not from a tree. We are fortunate here since this implies it grows on trees.

Even more fortunate are those in Chicagoland, where this tree grows, in a tranquil and secluded park. The background was entirely digitally created and morphed over time. Mostly unseen in the background, but still affecting the image, is a photo of a valley shot from atop a mountain temple in Thailand.
