"PHOTOGRAPH /n./ A picture painted by the sun without instruction in art. It is a little better than the work of an Apache, but not quite so good as that of a Cheyenne."    — Ambrose Bierce (1842—1914), The Devil's Dictionary.

I long thought that my vertical pictures were getting the short end of the stick: I had 3 and now 4 pages filled with horizontal wallpapers and nothing special for the best vertical ones. But then I bought a nice flat screen that can rotate in a vertical position. So here are a few images that can make nice wallpapers in vertical positions. I've simplified the wallpaper pages by keeping only the 768x1024 resolution; if you have a vertical screen it's going to be high resolution anyway. Just click on the preview images, wait for the large image to appear and finish loading, right-click on it and do [Set as Wallpaper].
