August Wallpaper: Mt. Rainier Wildflowers

Posted by on August 15th, 2013


This month’s free wallpaper comes from Mt. Rainier National Park here in Washington. I’m not going to lie, the reason this image is awesome has less to do with myself as an artist and more to do with how flat-out amazing the location was. I’d been to Rainier twice before — once in the fall and once in late winter — but I had no idea how incredible the already stunning vistas became once the wildflowers had taken over the meadows. Rainier in bloom deserves to be near the top of any landscape photographers list of places to visit.

You really need to see this place for yourself, but until you do visit, feel free to download this wallpaper. Clicking on the image will open a high-resolution version in a new tab. From there you can save the image to your computer.

About the image: This photo was taken on a Canon 5D Mark III with a 16-35mm lens at  35mm. My exposure time was 1/400 with an aperture of f13 and an ISO of 400. Lightroom edits included slight tweaks to the global settings, changes to the curves and color balance, as well as dodging and selective sharpening.
