August 2007 Desktop Wallpaper

August's scenic calendar wallpaper is a closeup photo of shells and rocks on a gray sandy beach taken by kahanaboy of morguefile.com. This month's wallpaper is a farewell to summer as it winds down, at least in the Northern Hemisphere. So enjoy the sand and sun while you can, whether it's at the seashore or lakeside.

Download August's desktop wallpaper on the fourth wallpaper page in one of four sizes. While you're there, check out the other wallpapers on that page and the other three pages.

Two Cool Desktop Wallpapers Pages

While I love offering desktop wallpapers for you to download, I also like some of the wallpapers available around the 'Net. Two of the sites I love are The Nature Conservancy, a conservation organization, and the National Geographic Society, known to me as a magazine but it's an organization that documents all things scientific, cultural and natural around the globe as well as funds projects. Both offer some of the most fantastic photographic desktop wallpapers around.

I've always admired the photos taken by the National Geographic photographers. They are beautiful and moving. Ever since they began offering photographic calendars, I've been buying them each year. So when they started offering desktop wallpapers, I've stopped by their web site to check them out and download a few.

Every month I get e-mail newsletters from The Nature Conservancy about their projects and an offer of a new download of desktop wallpapers. Besides the wallpapers they also offer nature e-cards which I haven't checked out yet.

Every now and then I like to have a new look on my desktop, not satisfied with the same old image day after day, month after month, nor with the standard stuff MS offers. So these two sites allow me to have a different and fabulous look on my computer's desktop. Of course, sometimes I have one of my own on there, too. But check out these two sites. It's one way to see the world without actually having to travel there.
