I learned recently that there is such a thing as a planet without an orbit. Depending on how it was formed, it could be a protostar that never became massive enough to fire up the typical heat- and light-producing reactions, or a castoff from a new star's protoplanetary disc. The first kind are "sub-brown dwarves", the second sometimes called "rogue planets".
I've loved this image for years; this one and "The Brink" (also an early work) just make me 'hear' and 'feel' the silence of things drifting in the aftermath of a wordless creation... And then I found out they're real. Ryan, either you're more smarter than me (not hard to do) or you've made some outrageously good guesses!

I don't think I've seen any other wallpaper of yours where you've tried to mix planetscape with abstract fractal art. The effect here is great, and makes me wonder what it would be like if you had done it today. Begging for a higher res as always :P
