Wallpaper of the Week: Smoke on the Water


This week's wallpaper is an almost monochrome image of smoke or fog spilling down a wooded, hillside and pouring over the banks onto a calm river. Parts look like a waterfall of fog cascading down the bank. The tops of trees are all that's visible above the mist. This background is muted with a good balance of not too light and not too dark areas. Soft edges manage to convey a sense of movement. Icons show up pretty well on this wallpaper.

Whenever I see Lupins I'm reminded of that famous Monty Python highwayman, Dennis Moore :)

I didn't think of that connection, it's a good one.

No fire in the sky?

And there's no Deep Purple to be found anywhere.

I was wondering if anyone would pick up on the reference. :-)

Did you know that was an actual indecent?

No I wasn't....I'll see if I can find it. :)

It was a Frank Zappa concert in Switzerland.
Apparently Deep Purple was across the lake from the Zappa concert and saw the huge fire and smoke over the lake.

I remember that being talked about back when the song was released.

Thank you. I haven't had a chance to look it up, that was an interesting read. :)
