Featured Download: Colors of Paradise

Now that winter is coming, we thought we'd share this desktop wallpaper. Forget about heavy coats and fur-lined hats, and get lost in dreams of a tropical paradise. Maybe it's time to take that trip you've been putting off. Warm sun, clear water, soft sand...

This photograph was taken on Jay's first (and ONLY) trip to Dry Tortugas National Park. The island is located about 70 miles Southwest of Key West and can be reached only by a ferry or sea plane. While photographing the beautiful old fort, he happened to find a completely intact fan coral that had washed ashore. He used the fan coral as an foreground, and composed the photograph to minimize harsh shadows. He used a circular polarizer filter to cut through the glare and bring out the brilliant colors of the water. Hope you enjoy this featured download.
