If you intend to use these pictures as backgrounds for your own website(s) or want to embed them in some other way please do not hotlink directly to the files hosted here on ETC. I just don't have the bandwidth to support that! Instead, download the pictures you want, upload them to your own webspace and then embed them.

Of course if you just want to place a normal link to where you got the pictures from that's fine (in fact I'd really appreciate it!) - but please link to this page rather than directly to the picture file.

Thanks for reading and have fun with the pictures!
