It was a couple of years since the last time I was out on the Atlantic and I'm starting to feel the urge to go crusing again. To ease my boredom it would be nice to have a new wallpaper for my laptop. Anyone have big pictures (1280x1024 or bigger) of the ocean? It can be waves, storms, a flat ocean and stuff like that, I just want something nice too look at.

Using google search just gives me small pictures (400x200) and that is not nice enough...

Please help me.

Hello Loggert,

Would it be correct to suggest that you wish to purchase High Quality Pictures of the sea ?

There are many professional photographers who have a variety of seascapes at a price.

Here is a company that sells large photos at very reasonable prices :

Well yes and no.

I'm looking for photos taken by sailers on crossings and stuff like that. I think that they often capture the feeling of the sea more then the proffessional.

Here's one I took, its a view from Bass Strait looking to Cape Schank (Near Melbourne Australia) at 7am. Not sure if its high quality but I like it. (right click and save it)

Hola Publicbar...... that isn't Cape Schank that is West Head..... the buildings are the RAN's West Head Gunnery Range...... photo looks like it was taken from the SSE.
