Places You'd Rather Be

Where would you hide out from the world?

                                                     Emerald water Paradise

Warm tropical breeze, billowing white clouds, sapphire sky, crystal clear water and no cell phone towers... your chance to become shipwrecked.  The 1920 x 1200 image is from Desktop Wallpaper HD.

                                     Eilean Donan Castle near Dornie, Scotland

Bed, breakfast and a great top floor view of sunset over the lake - did you say you were looking for an elevator?  The image is 1024 x 768 at 96 dpi from Scenic Reflections.  There were pop-up ads to deal with when accessing the picture.

                                             Have you considered meditation?

There's nothing like a large, towering rock to get your attention.  This 1920 x 1200, 300 dpi image is from WallpaperStop.

                                               Grand Tetons, Wyoming - USA

First word that comes to mind when viewing these mountains - majestic?  You'll want four-wheel drive for getting around and the nearest store is a good thirty minute trip.  The image from Netjunkz is 1600 x 1200.

                                                  Port, somewhere far away

Sleep when you want, eat as you please and mingle with people of intrigue.  They're all running from something just like you.  Kool Wallpapers provides this 1658 x 1043 image.

                                              Curme Island, Desolation Sound

The stillness of sunset over British Columbia.  The area is called Desolation Sound but trouble would find it difficult tracking you here.  This 1920 x 1200, 96 dpi image is from Sfondissimo.

                                                            Machu Picchu

Getting away from it all in the Lost City of the Incas, high in the Andes Mountains of Peru.  Those nagging day to day problems loose their punch among these polished stones of ancient ruins.  At least it beats the tourist traps of Venice.  Scenic Reflections provides this 1024 x 768 image at 180 dpi.

                                                  Slot Canyon, Utah - USA

These richly colored, narrow crevices beneath the Earth's surface are an enchanting place to visit but definitely not for the claustrophobic.  Scenic Wallpapers provides this 1600 x 1200 photo.

                                                        Caribbean Island

Here's the fabled deserted island where romance begins between a couple brought together by fate.  That's the way I'd like to see it.  The chances are, though, that the only coconuts served up here are at the Tiki Room of the Beachcomber Inn directly behind the photographer snapping this picture.  Scenic Wallpapers provides this 1600 x 1200 storybook photo.

                                                      Beethoven's Getaway

Love on the rocks... absorbing the mood of an unsettling sea.  You're a special kind of tourist seeking this one out.  I'll not be dining out tonight.  I'm devouring my insides.  Bon appetite.  The image is 1600 x 1000 from reddit.


Somewhere amidst the clouds trees cling to impossible pillars of stone burnished by the fading light.  Once here you realize rewards of this magnitude require a strenuous trek.  deshow offers this taste at 1600 x 1200.
