Do you have a picture?

I have a beautiful nature scene at the moment. Pine trees, deep blue sky, mountains, blue lake--it's beautiful and serene.
Here it is:

This is a comical picture that my husband created to remind him of the surfing trip he's taking this May while I'm at a wedding in Texas. He'll be living like a bum with our Boxer and surfing up the coast of California for 10 days, a big dream of his. He pasted his head over Kelly Slaters, and I love the fact that he's wearing a hat. Oh, my dear husband... he's so weird.

Right now, this one. I took it on some road north of me while driving around looking for things to take pictures of.

But, honestly, I don't see it much. Except maybe when I shut down and start up my computer. Which, that doesn't happen much. Usually on Mondays and Wednesdays.

I just use the Ascent background that came with Win XP. When I finally get around to changing over to the new computer my husband bought me that has Vista, I guess I will have to find a new background.

I like the ascent of the moon over the mountain tops. It has tranquil coloration and allows my mind to drift when I sit and look at it. Which isn't often these days. Plus I have it covered up with icons. My husband asks how I can find anything on my desktop, it is so packed with icons. I tell him it is my desktop and I know what stack what I am looking for is in. My organized chaos keeps him off my computer. ;)

My husband had the one I posted on his computer and I liked it so he sent it over to me. Nature scenes are my favorite desktop pics. Very soothing and inspiring for writers.
