The wallpaper of this week is a photo I took while driving up north on Pacific Highway 1, one of the most beautiful drives in my humble opinion. The cliffs and the ocean combined with a beautiful winter blue sky will always offer great photo opportunities. It's hard to describe the feeling of 'driving up the 1' through photos. For me, there's nothing like the cold breeze of the ocean and the sound of the water hitting the rocks on deserted beaches, no houses just you and nature. It's a connection hard to describe in words, but I hope this picture captures a bit of what I am trying to depict.
