I had to post the link like that because the board didn't like ImageShack's thumbnail code for that one for some reason. :(

 

Yeah... Win/KDE. Uh-huh. ;)

The photo of the Northern Lights on the left was sent to me by frapper. There is a thunderstorm on the right.

Love the wallpaper zlim. If you are a decorator then Rocket Dock is not only pretty but very useful too. Works a treat in XP. :shifty:

abarbarian, nope not a decorator. I had Webshots paid for several years and I have more wallpaper than I can possibly use in my life time. I have an old program that takes a webshot file and will convert it to a jpg. So I can convert all those paid pictures I downloaded and use them on my XP computers, if I want.

I'm usually a sucker for any tropical beach scene.

Win 7 Pro in Virtual Box running in Arch Linux. I have this set up more optimally for work than my corporate laptop is :) It's awesome because I no longer require to have 2 laptops out (work and play) I can work within my play environment. :)

MS Office 2013 installed (which was quite a bit different then Office 2007 that I was used to using)

Yeah, 2013 is quite a bit different.

Could not resiste the $9.99 for the HUP MS Office offer to those with a .mil account ;)

Neat ichase. B)

 

FULL SIZE CLEAN

This is a slightly out of focus handheld fully zoomed shot taken with me K-30 and a 30 year old manual Vivitar zoom I bought for £11.99 inc postage.

 

I took three shots with the kit zoom 28-55mm to show its reach from the spot I took the original shot from.

 

No zoom alvlCYGl.jpg

 

Mid zoom d6E9skNl.jpg

 

Full zoom NY2jHdJl.jpg

 

Full zoom on the Vivitarlyr1yz7l.jpg

 

The wallpaper was a crop from the full zoom Vivitar. If you look at the centre of the picture you can see two little hillocks, one with a white stone atop and slightly right of that one with buttercups atop. The crop came from around there.

 

I am amazed that the crop gave such a nice picture as it was taken from quite a distance and I do not think I had the camera properly set up. Looking dead centre and slightly right and up a touch you see a dark spot, that to me suggests a entrance to a woodland path whereas in real life you are seeing branches and foliage high up in a tree. The suggestion of a dark entrance with the flowers in the foreground coupled with the blurriness gives the wallpaper a darkly dreamy atmosphere in my mind.

 

Maybe I'm smoking too much though.

 

Enjoy. :breakfast:

My XP in Virtual Box, I work in both XP and Win 7 environments as well as Server 2003 and 2008. This makes me love VBox that much more. :thumbsup: I scroll to a new workspace in Linux and I am in my VM's. Best of both worlds. :) Work and play with out a reboot :)
