Funny thing about these images, I was driving while I took them. I don’t recommend any one attempt it, especially not on curvy little mountain roads in fog so dense you can only see oncoming cars about 100 feet in front of you. I couldn’t help myself though! I would have stopped but I was on my way to a work/concert gig and was on a schedule that the fog was not helping me meet. My suggestion if under the same scenario? Manual focus set near infinity and know your camera well enough to just aim out the window and click. Keep things off your dashboard so you don’t get reflections and shoot between the wipers. heh, ok, obvious advice today. The reason the bottom two are black and white it simply because balancing color in fog is strange to me and nothing in these other than the green one up there really stood out as needing color. Certainly nothing wrong with a classic black and white from time to time.

Enough rambling for now. To download the wallpaper pack of these three images in high res desktop, iPad, and iPhone croppings simply CLICK OR RIGHT CLICK HERE to download the zip which also contains a handy terms of use which reminds you that there is no commercial use of these images allowed and please don’t redistribute the full resolution wallpapers on your site, thanks!  In the new version of 50ft, when its here, I have a nice new way of making download links. I cant wait to stop writing in all caps to make it clear where to download the zip.

    Thanks for sharing these fantastic images. I really appreciate them so much.

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!
