Forest Through The Trees


I know this is not particularly anything new in the photography world but as I was driving back through the mountains after some work I had this fog had settled in a valley around a big waterfall and I simply had to take advantage of these beautiful trees and get a couple of nice desktop images out of it. I thought this touch of yellow and blue added something nice to the feeling these have. I also shot a few film photos while I was there and they are being developed today so hopefully some more photos to share soon!

To download the full desktop image simply CLICK OR RIGHT CLICK HERE to download the zip containing both the images and the terms of use, no commercial use please!

ALSO! I LOVE all of you who have been helping out and posting links here to the site, your help is what keeps me going and helps spread the word of 50ft and what I am doing here but could I ask one little favor of you all who are sharing images? I certainly don’t mind the occasional use of an image as a tumblr or blog background and I certainly dont mind when you repost images around in your blogs but if you link back to a specific desktop could you do me a favor and link back to the permalink page where you can download the desktop rather than linking directly to the .zip file?

I am not going to go around policing the web or anything but your understanding would be pretty helpful :) I love my readers and I love that you guys help me out and the reason I use zips are to help push people in the sites direction so if you could help me out by doing that in the future I would be very much grateful, thank you(!) and I hope you continue to enjoy what I do around here.

    Hi John,

    I’m not sure if you’ve been asked/answered this question before, but would you be interested in doing iPhone versions of these wallpapers?

    I for one would love reworked versions of some of these on my phone…

    Keep up the good work sir

    Paul I have thought about that and think its a cool idea, Im just deciding how to go about it, maybe just from time to time make a iPhone post with a bunch of the more recent desktops in iPhone form, or perhaps just add phone versions in the future. I also have my eye on getting some ipad wallpapers going soon too.

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.

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!
