May 2007 Desktop Showcase!

Post by pentapenguin »

As per tradition...mine is a default background included with Windows Vista. I'm glad they finally got some nice new nature and scenic backgrounds and even widescreen ones for my lovely new widescreen LCD! :)

Does it say where that picture was taken? I would just about bet money that it's the Maroon Bells, near Aspen, Colorado.

Good question, Dave. I'm not sure but it according to the meta data is was taken by Art Wolfe. You've piqued my curiosity. :) I'll try to find out sometime soon. But isn't that a gorgeous shot? :D

Art Wolfe is a quite famous photographer, at least in the US. The Maroon Bells are said to be some of the most photographed mountains in the world. They sit at the end of a glacial valley, which gives it a distinctive "U" shape. The aspen in the fall can turn beautiful shares of amber and gold, and are set off by the green fir trees also in the area. The lake in the picture is - oddly enough - Maroon Lake, and during sunrise it can provide amazing reflections of the mountains.

This is a slighly different angle from what I normally see, so I would not bet my entire fortune (both nickles) on it being Maroon Bells. But I think the odds are quite good. If you do a google image search for Maroon Bells Colorado you will see quite a few pictures that are similar, but taken more staight-on to the mountains. The one you posted appears to be from further around the valley.

I've been there, but my pictures from those trips are not that great...

I've had this one for a week or so, it'll probably change before the end of the month.

Auto-updating one.. Actually, I haven't used the program for it in quite a while.. I might use it again later or something, so I'll post it anyway.

As usual, taken on the grand trip to Cuba earlier this year. The photo shows one of the many restaurants that bring the outside in via open ceilings, something you wouldn't dream of doing in England ;).
