These images are suitable for use as desktop backgrounds. They're some of the photos that I have taken and like the most. As a warning though: the size (extremely large) and format (Photoshop PSD) may make the images unwieldy to manipulate.

The Huka Falls, near Lake Taupo, North Island, New Zealand.

Fortunately there's a bridge over the falls, so I didn't have to get my feet wet!

Pilgrammage river, near Hanoi, northern Vietnam.

Every year a festival brings thousands of people to the river, and someone has to get the pilgrims to the temples. These boats do the job, as do the sturdy folk that row them

Boiling mud, Hell's Gate thermal reserve, near Rotorua, North Island, New Zealand.

Bridge over boiling mud, Hell's Gate thermal reserve, near Rotorua, North Island, New Zealand.

Used car lot, north of Denver, Colorado, United States of America.

When I went to the US, I thought that I would try out some black and white film. Well, it turns out that everything looks good in B&W, including the rather grim downtown Denver landscape.

Pyramid Peak, Aspen, Colorado, United States of America.

A summer time photo, courtesy of my British (although residing in America) friend Sarah. Pyramid Peak is one of the few US mountains over 13,000 feet, and it's not hard to see where it's name comes from.
