Wallpaper of the Week: Sun and Sea Panorama

This weeks wallpaper is a panoramic photo of the sun making its way across the sky above the shimmering sea. Each of the twelve shots is separated by a thin line, giving the photo the look of a series of panels that form one image that's framed by a black border. The sea is in the foreground, rock formations are in the middle, and the sun arcs across the sky at the top of the image. Colors change from silver to gold to blues and grays and contrast quite well with the black background. Icons show up well on this wallpaper.
