Beach Dream

Beach Dream

Take a deep breath for me, it’s OK, go ahead. Our lives are filled with noise so it can be good to take little unexpected breaks from time to time. The weather is warming up around here so I looked back through my archives and found a few shots from the coast to share. Messing about with focus and perspective as always. The odd image out is the oddly tinted one which was shot through a pair sunglasses for a simple effect. Thats all for now, I just thought I would share something fresh for your screens while I had some time today. Enjoy!

Side note for the geeks, I’m using a new resolution for the iPhone 6 Plus. I’m probably the only one using it but I prefer it. It matches the iPhones resolution better in my testing and allows me better control over the end result as it appears on your screen. You will notice it latch back into the stay place any time you try and shift it from left to right and then activate perspective again. This unfortunately does not extend to the vertical field and there is a bit of give to where you choose to position the image vertically but its the closest I have gotten to a properly behaving image resolution on the device. 

There is a common misconception that I have played into that the 6 Plus should use a square wallpaper because of its orientation changing capabilities but the way the feature is coded does not take into consideration a wider image, it simply zooms to adjust to the wider perspective making a square wallpaper pointless. 

Also, standard desktop resolution from here in will be increased to match current 15 inch macbook models. Future changes here on 50ft will include iPad Pro models as well as the frequently asked for giant iMac resolutions which is tricky for me for reasons I will get into another day.

    Today, for the very first time, Apple is providing downloadable wallpapers of their own for all devices: I haven’t fully explored/tested each myself, but you can use these as reference with respect to wallpaper dimensions as they are the “canonical” sizes—straight from the source!

    I love the shot through the sunglasses lens, it lends the image a high dynamic range feel – really very nice. Hope everything is going well with the new addition etc, congratulations!

Any use of these images for any purpose other than this is a violation of these terms and anyone found using said images will be asked to either compensate the creator for doing so or be asked to stop using them immediately.

I ask that you refrain from using any images found on to create physically printed material of any kind. This includes posters, photographic prints, fliers, etc. Under no circumstances may you make a physical reproduction without written permission.

These rules also apply for any artwork or imagery submitted and shown within this site which was created by an artist aside from myself. Any images submitted and shared as wallpapers are the property of the artist who created them and in the same manner as my images, you are asked to receive permission before using them in any way aside from their intended use. Any use of these images outside of for your own personal use as a desktop wallpaper image is prohibited without permission from the author of the image.

When sharing images via your personal blogs I kindly ask that you link back directly to either the post the image was taken from or the base of the website at and give a credit to Do not re-post full resolution desktop images anywhere without permission. If you would like to use an image for your blog background or something of the sort simply write to ask first. Support the artwork you admire! Also, it is greatly appreciated if you do NOT link directly to the zip files. This is more or less the same as re-posting them as it circumvents the tiny bit of support I ask of you which is to simply link back to the original post for others to enjoy the site.

It’s not fair to artists if you do not credit their work and link back to the original content creator. It is theft plain and simple and blogs that attempt to somehow be mysterious by not giving credit to the creators are simply hurting the artistic community as a whole. If you love it so much then please, support it! The artistic community on the Internet is based on trust. Without trust then what do we have? are you going to be one of the responsible users out there or will you be among the bottom feeders, stealing content and passing it off as your own to make a quick buck in ad sales.

Use your best judgement and we will get along just fine.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
