Most Beautiful Photographs Used in Microsoft Windows Themes

Hello once again my fellow readers. Martin is here! After some time I have come back and I have something special for today. So I was thinking the other day, where could I find some impressive photos to write about. Well, the answer was right in front of my eyes, as an amazing picture of African wildlife turned up on my desktop.

Some of you may be familiar with the photographs as lots of people use Windows. Hence Microsoft amazed me with an incredible selection of photographs used in Windows themes. As you can now see, Microsoft has a really sophisticated taste in photography and there is no need to look up the Internet for some good photos to decorate your screen as there are plenty of them at microsoft.com. They have actually gathered a giant gallery of spectacular shots. There are pictures of various topics – from stunning cars to cute penguins of Antarctic. So take a look!
