Since I’m a new Mac convert, I thought I’d give a little back to the Mac community by creating a few free desktop backgrounds based on some of my HDR work. Here’s a shot of the famous Inukshuk overlooking English Bay in Vancouver. Here’s the sun rising over Vancouver’s Granville Street Bridge. The sun setting over the ocean near English Bay, Vancouver. And a shot of downtown Vancouver from the Harbour Center at Night. Head on over here to download one. I’ll add more as time goes on.
