    Photo Assignment: Desktop Background
    Ok guys, here is your task. What are your best desktop background photos? I'm looking for stuff that anyone who loves mountain biking can enjoy. It should be somewhat vague but also convey the spirit of mountain biking. I'm thinking nature, a gnarly section of singletrack, artistic riding shots. Here are my current ones. (iPhone 3GS)

    So, let's fill up our work days in the office with some good art of what we would rather be doing!

    It's getting to be the season for night rides in the AZ desert. I grabbed this shot with my iPhone a few weeks ago.

    Wow,
    that's outstanding idea regarding background photos,
    Well which camera is greatest for receiving these types of susceptible shoots?

    This one is not an action shot or anything, but I just love it. Often set it as my background:

    And this one is my favorite summertime background - since it shows one of the best places to ride, and helps me forget the heat :)

    Here is a pic I snapped of a chickenhawk on my way to work. Thought I had snapped it when it was sitting down but I guess it took off right as a snapped it so got this amazing shot of it.

    Not easy to get these pics from a P&S from a vehicle as they tend to fly off if you stop by them.

    I made this my background pic.

    Nice picture but that river doesn't look angry at all.
