Although it was never my intention, I seem to have started a wallpaper trend. As each season draws near, I receive e-mails asking when I'll have the next seasonally appropriate images to share. Well, here are five new ones for winter. The originals are cropped at a 16:10 aspect ratio (1920 x 1200) to match my monitor, and as always, I've also supplied them at 1280 x 1024.
It's tough to find color in the winter; all that snow and ice tends to wash everything out. The first four photos were taken at a park in Holland, Michigan on November 24, 2002, right after a beautiful snowfall. If you look carefully, you can see an individual snowflake in the fourth picture. The last shot was taken as my wife and I left for a Caribbean cruise on the morning of April 6, 2003. It had rained, and everything was coated with an icy shell. This image is from a tree in our front yard. Needless to say, none of the palm trees in Florida later that day showed any signs of ice. :)
If you missed the first four sets, check out Macro Wallpaper, Macro Wallpaper 2, Macro Wallpaper 3: Fallpaper, and Macro Wallpaper 4.
I also try to shoot nature, as most people don't take the time to see it. I am so impressed with your shots and certainly your patience. Thank you for sharing.
