Does anyone know where I can find some high quality wallpaper photos of Mt. Washington for my computer desktop?

I always use the photos from the photo journal.

Thank you all for the links and suggestions. It very hard to find photos that, when used as enlarged wallpaper, come out very clear.

On some days, this link can show some outstanding shots. Use the high res link if you want photos large enough for wallpaper. Just check it often for clear days.

I posted a couple of my favorites in the Photos forum here:


I included the links to the 1600x1200 originals as well. I'll upload some additional ones as I find them in my collection...

How about these?


Trying to locate the .jpg originals, there somewhere on my 850 gigs of drives :(

I love this! I remember seeing it last year when you posted it. Could you refresh my memory? Were you atop the ski trails? When exactly was it? Which stitching program did you use? And what is the viewing mechanism you're using? Oh yeah, have you ever printed it?

I was at Wildcat, it was right near the end of the season. Warm day, probably in the high 50's or low 60's.

I shot it handheld on a Canon Rebel XT with a 70-300mm telephoto. Taking about 9 shots for that. This was the first long distance test of my telephoto, and from Wildcat over to Tucks is probably 3 miles (I'm guessing here, someone will correct me).

Stitched it with Autopano Pro (www.autopano.net)

I have printed it, but it's a weird size, it ended up being 6 inches high by almost 5 feet long.

I do plan on going back up there this year with my tripod and try to shoot a gigapixel image (probably 300-400 shots to do it).

On my webpage, I'm using Zoomify, a flash program that lets you zoom in/out of the image to see more detail.

I also converted all of them to Microsoft HD View, which is an installable plugin (for PC only). I prefer HD View, as it's much smoother on the zooming, and will auto adjust the color palette for stuff in the distance to try to remove atmospheric perspective (grey haze)


If you look at Huntington Ravine on the right, you'll see 2 hikers heading up through it.
