I Have had a couple of requests now for some desktops with a bit more of a spring feeling which is a reasonable request I thought so I shot these as a response, I will shoot some more as I find some images that I think represent spring without being too terribly cliché if thats possible :)

As always, these are to be used for your own personal use and not for any commercial use. Thanks for understanding, click the desktop you would like to have and you will be on your way to a fresh start for your computing day.

    I also miss your nature shots. I still use some from twistedsun as wallpaper. Thanks for these!

    I do too actually, most of the time my desktop is one of your images it’s very occasionally that changes.

    Wonderful shots! If I’m trying to download it says 404 address not found. Do you know why?

    hi daniel, sorry about that, i have no idea why that would be happening, both links go straight to .zip files so you could try and right click them and download file or whatever the option is. a friend just told me she was having trouble as well with pages sometimes… i wonder why..

    anyways, let me know if you keep having trouble with them, i can just mail them to you directly.

All of the images contained within this website, fiftyfootshadows.net, are property of, John Carey unless otherwise posted. The images are distributed as freeware but they are available for personal use only on your personal computer, tablet, or smartphone as your wallpaper image. 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 fiftyfootshadows.net 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. Commercial licensing is available upon request. Please write with any inquiries.

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 www.fiftyfootshadows.net and give a credit to www.fiftyfootshadows.net. 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!
