iPad Wallpaper: The Rockies from 30,000 Feet

In my new iPad and iPhone 4S camera shootout article I included a stunning photo of the snow-covered Rocky Mountains.  The photo was taken by photographer Elliot Shev as he flew over the Rockies.  It's an impressive photo, especially when you consider that it was shot through the airplane's window.  The bonus, of course, is that it was taken with Apple's new iPad (third-generation).

A couple of readers wrote to ask if the photo could be made available in the new iPad's retina display resolution.  I'm pleased to report that Elliot has consented to allowing Mark's Hangout to host the photo for all to enjoy on their new iPads.  Click the image below to open the 2048 x 2048 version and then save the larger image.

Elliot's photo makes for a very nice background wallpaper.  In fact, it's the photo that I am currently using on my iPad!


It seems appropriate that the photo used as the new iPad's wallpaper background is a photo actually taken with a new iPad!  My thanks to Elliot for sharing his terrific image!
