Each member can post one desktop in this thread each month.
The desktop cannot be larger than 800x600.
Not only will posting inappropriate desktop pictures get them deleted, it will also get you banned. This includes anything semi-lewd. This is a family forum if it's not PG then don't post it.
Feel free to post the source from which you got your wallpapers, themes, icons, UI modifier apps, etc.

Cheers Feniks, the picture was taken from my phone too, (HTC Desire HD), love the camera on it, takes some great pictures at times!

I like my desktop all tidy, really annoys me at work, the office computers desktops are just full of icons, looks so messy and hard to find things (Windows too)

I really like the angle you shot this at. And the curved "lines" are awesome too! :D

Thanks - would love to say it was intentional but it was caused by myself getting jostled about the passenger seat so much in previous corners, just lucky it turned out so well!

Driving to the beach. Notice how high we were, and how close we came to the edge of death. One of the scariest drives of my life! Driving back was MUCH easier!

I took this picture two days ago in Big Bay Upper Michigan. The best vacation I have had in a LONG time. Very laid back, reading, photography and napping :)

You can also upload to a Photo Sharing site (List (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_photo_sharing_websites)) and then you will et the full size picture. I use something like Skitch (http://skitch.com/) to take a screenshot and upload to there site.

And then upload via URL? I tried that with Cloud but I guess that doesn't work?

Within Skitct there is a list of URL's you can copy to post to different places with different size rules. I use the *Direct Link* url clicking on it pastes it to the clipboard then all you need to do is click on the the yellow square box at the top of this box with mountains in it and paste the url in that or paste it inbetween
