finally, it’s spring. or more like summer, but whatever.
I guess it could be somewhat offensive to the photographers that I’m recommending their images as desktop wallpaper. But it just means I think it’s a great photo! If I had money and owned a house I would recommend photographs I like as “things to buy prints of and frame” but until then my computers have the only walls I’m allowed to wallpaper. Even so, I will change the name of these posts from now on.
The stars in that last image are really amazing. I recommend other photos in “Cap’n Surly’s” stream as well. Very dramatic! There’s also some silhouettes of horses, which turn out to be a monument that I’ve never heard of despite living in Washington and visiting various points along the Columbia river. I need to see this someday.
I’m in the mood for color this month, and this seemed to go with the back-to-school-ness of my life (click the image to go to its home):
And check out this feature “35 Beautiful examples of Nature Photography“. It’s pretty breathtaking.
i’m always really excited when it’s time to pick a new desktop wallpaper. so i figured why not share in case someone else wants to enjoy? i frequently use the stock photo site sxc.hu because i like the hierarchical categories they offer for browsing. sometimes i use flickr, of course. both of these images came from stock.xchng though.
