Some cool moving wallpapers images:
Image by Auntie K " Barrabas came to us by sea, the child Clara wrote in her delicate calligraphy. She was already in the habit of writing down important matters, and afterward, when she was mute, she also recorded trivialities, never suspecting that fifty years later I would use her notebooks to reclaim the past and overcome terrors of my own." - Isabel Allende, "The House of the Spirits"
Bruce Peninsula Sea Cave Wallpaper
Image by coloneljohnbritt The Sea Cave looking out into Indian Head Cove, Bruce Peninsula National Park, Ontario, Canada. Melding of four images shot at +/- 2.3 EV to capture water saturation and cave details. Also taken with ND64x filter to eliminate people as much as possible. The one lad whose feet are visible stood there for over five minutes and didn't move a muscle. The water and setting was completely mesmerizing.
Lavender Wildflower HD Desktop 16x9 Wallpaper - Geranium pyrenaicum
Image by coloneljohnbritt Tentatively identified as a member of the Geranium family - possibly Geranium pyrenaicum (Hedgerow Cranesbill). If you can clarify further, please do! These small (<1cm) blooms were along the sandy shores of Lake Huron in Michigan - near some Birdsfoot Trefoil. Although not clear in this angle, there are five heart-shaped petals for each bloom and the plant has a low, spreading habit (although I don't think I'd call it a vine, exactly). It reminded me of speedwell in its habit. I used the Raynox DCR-150 on a Canon Powershot SX40 HS for this - It helps me to frame properly for most flowers to use the DCR-150 with the SX40 HS. The DCR-250 is so much stronger that I often cannot get the entire subject into the camera's field of view until I move to a wide angle setting, at which point the auxiliary lens causes vignetting. In this case, the lens was zoomed almost all the way out - over the 500mm equivalent of a 35mm film SLR.
