2 New Wallpapers
Please note that at the same time I decided to remove 2 other wallpapers from the list because I found them of rather poor quality and not matching my current standards. For this reason I will probably substitute several other wallpapers pretty soon.
You can see both new wallpapers on the right (and to download them just go to the Wallpapers section and follow the instructions there). They are:
I hope you will like them!
In fact I use the first of them as a desktop wallpaper myself – it really looks great in large size. Colours of those macaws still amaze me. It’s amazing how beautiful the nature can be.
Daily photo – Before Storm
It’s time for a Daily photo. Today photo was taken during sunset in Mexico just a few minutes before severe storm. Initially it looked like a regular and in fact quite promising sunset (there were sun rays and clouds had interesting shapes) but out of a sudden clouds and light became rather surreal and dangerous (I will post another image later) and then the storm began. And it started to rain. Heavily. So unfortunately I needed to evacuate from the beach in order to protect my photo gear.
