Actually, they can be downloaded from here: http://vistawallpapers.wordpress.com/

The one I have ALWAYS liked is this one. I'll have to figure out how to resize it to 1600x900 for my screen.

You have great taste. That wallpaper is probably my favorite in Windows Vista.

I wasn't able to find a 1600x900 image, but I did find a 1600x1050 one. Perhaps you will find a use for it?

Excellent! my thanks very much to you. I think all I'll have to do is right-click and "save as" 1900x1050 will be fine. then under customize in Windows I'll just hit "fit" for the best fit to my screen. Again, thank you.  (Y)

 

Added later: I think MSFT got it right with this wallpaper. This is from my photographic experience and point of view. I'd love to be there and capture a few photos with my filters and such.

The default Vista theme was better than the Windows 7 theme and is much better than the Windows 8.x theme.

this was from my recent Lake tahoe visit. I try to get out of the house when i feel I can make it physically. at any rate, this was near incline village and sand harbor.

 

Note: when you get to the webpage, you'll have to click the picture twice to get it to come in clear. as far as I know. it was 5PM i wanted sundown but with the kids in tow... sometimes I have to settle.

Here's a story about the photo and photographer.

that was an excellent story. I'm amateur myself and have been published a few times myself but nothing of his caliber. but the shot is gorgeous and lighting was perfect
