March 2010 Wallpaper

with 4 comments

Here we go….free calender wallpaper for March 2010 and this time, it’s a Silhouette shots of sunset during my visit to Spain. This picture was captured from the Garden of Generalife, viewed the landscape of Sierra Nevada mountain. but the building in this photo is not the Alhambra!!

The Palacio de Generalife was the summer palace and country estate of the Nasrid sultans of Granada. The palace and gardens were built during the reign of Muhammad III (1302-1309) and redecorated shortly after by Abu I-Walid Isma’il (1313-1324). The complex consists of the Patio de la Acequia (Court of the Water Channel or Water-Garden Courtyard), which has a long pool framed by flowerbeds, fountains, colonnades and pavilions, and the Jardín de la Sultana (Sultana’s Garden or Courtyard of the Cypress). The former is thought to best preserve the style of the medieval garden in Al-Andalus.

Originally the palace was linked to the Alhambra by a covered walkway across the ravine that now divides them. The Generalife is one of the oldest surviving Moorish gardens. The present-day gardens were started in 1931 and completed by Francisco Prieto Moreno in 1951.

So here is the wallpaper according to the resolution of monitor.

1280×800 and 1920×1200

I hope you enjoy the wallpaper and wish you have a great month ahead.

February Wallpaper

with 8 comments

All right, as promised starting from this month i’ll upload a wallpaper per month,for all visitors here for free!!which is from the best shot of the previous month. My main purpose is actually to keep my momentum up and polish my skill which i think this is one of the fast way and of course to let my visitors enjoy a new wallpaper each month with a CALENDER in it.

Back to the main point, this month i’ll share my landscape wallpaper,which been captured during my winter trip to Sevilla Spain last December 2009. The name of the bridge is Puenta de Triana de Sevilla which is one of the main bridge in Sevilla ( there are a lot of bridge here, you’ll be amaze if you come visiting here ). Shot was taken during sunset and the real shot actually exactly like this one, just a minor treatment was done to keep the the picture clean. The history behind of this bridge i can’t really find it in the internet.

Here is some info about the Triana Town which being connected to the Sevilla City by Puenta de Triana Bridge (I think so):

Triana is a neighborhood in the city of Seville, Spain, across the river Guadalquivir from the center, and in fact the majority, of the city. Triana shares what is effectively an island (sitting between two arms of the Guadalquivir except for a narrow strip to the north where it is canalized under the ground) with Los Remedios to the south and La Cartuja to the north. The island is also named Isla de la Cartuja, and has been home to human settlement since before the Romans colonized Hispalis (Seville).

Traditionally, residents of Triana consider the neighborhood to be an entity separate from the rest of Seville, as a result of its popular sense of identity. In reality, Triana forms an integral part of Seville, its culture, and its tradition.
