Summer Inside Winter


New desktop! It’s been a while right? Early this morning I woke up to go shoot a photo for the our window project and took a number of nice photos as the sun rose over a lake at a park nearby. In the photo that one bokeh circle there under the glow of the sun is the reflection of the sun on the lake, it was really beautiful out and I have quite a few more images I will turn into desktops from this little shooting venture so keep an eye out for more

To download the desktop size version of this simply CLICK OR RIGHT CLICK HERE to grab the attached zip file with the desktop inside, the terms of use are also inside which pretty much just ask that you not use this image for any commercial use without my permision. Thanks, and enjoy!

    Woah!!! The wallpaper is amazing. Did you take this picture? If yes, you’re good. It’s totally going to be my office’s background for a while!

    Onyx, happy you enjoy it! Yep 99 percent of the wallpapers on 50ft were shot by me.

    My goodness! I’m using this picture in my Path account as a cover. Been months looking for the source, but I just found it here. I love your shots, I really am. They’re beautiful, esp the nature things like trees, leaves, flowers, I love them all. But this one, is my favorite! Thank you :)

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!
