Good image, but with Macs they go so fast you don't need a screen saver.

Hmm. Slightly reminiscent of the default Windows XP image, but much more interesting!

By the way, a "screen saver" is a relic of the 90's designed to prevent burn-in on CRT monitors. This is a desktop background.

That is a really great capture. I spent several minutes just looking at it and I love how my eyes naturally want to start in the bottom left corner and travel up that gnarly old tree trunk until they hit the cloud line and then they drift off to the right just like the clouds appear to be doing!

Great shot. Well composed and very nice capture of the twisted Utah Juniper.
