Wallpaper of the Week: Arctic Sunset


This week's wallpaper is a stunning sunset in the Arctic. Taken from a snowy hill with a fisheye lens, the sun sits on the horizon under a fiery orange and yellow sky. Light touches the top of the ridge, adding gold highlights to the snow covered rocks. Icons show up very well on this background.
