Desktop Delights – January 2022

I have a feeling of being spoilt this month with some extraordinary people sharing their anything but ordinary desktop images.

Becky remembered the date (Yeah!) and was the first to share her desktop this month, with an amazing image a hundred yards from her doorstep in the Algarve – Portugal’s southernmost region. The view is one of the reasons Becky loves being in Portugal.

It’s another real-world shot for Martin this month with a photo of a train passing through Hither Green in southeast London. I found the curves in the tracks fascinating, though Martin says it was his camera that caused this accentuation.

Cee shared an incredible wide-angle image of a beach in her home state of Oregon. The sky is full of storm clouds and yet the beach is still inviting. Personally, I love that time just before the energy in the sky cracks and I think Cee’s photo captures that moment perfectly.

Danny share an incredible photo he took a few months ago in Iceland. It’s a breathtaking image captured about five miles outside of Reykjavik on the Ring Road. Wow! I knew it was a photo taken near Reykjavik as I worked for a business where a similar (very large) image adorned the walls.

All these magnificent photos are making me feel very spoilt indeed.

LadySighs shared a (very busy) graphical cheat sheet for Vim – a free and open-source, screen-based text editor program for Unix. Having this on your desktop looks like a clever way to learn something new. She admitted to me: “I can’t get past the first few lessons and just say “Phooey! I’m sure I would say “Phooey!” also.

Brian shared a view of the Moon from a sunrise beck in January 2019. He says: “Where the Moon was, this is part of the colour of the sunrise no editing involved.” As a self-professed lunatic, I say “Wow! Be still my beating heart.”

Still feeling spoilt.

Aletta’s photo this month is of a desolate road somewhere in Namibia. Taken from an area off the side of the rod and looking across to a sand dune, I thought the foreground area looked a bit like a moonscape.

Thank you, everyone, I get so much enjoyment out of seeing what you’re looking at.

    1. Thanx, Becky. I don’t have a huge following, but a lovely pool of regulars who never cease to amaze me with the wonderful photo they share (you included of course) 🙂


I'd love to hear your thoughts . . .
