At the top of Mount Oso, in California, there is a Canon A60 digital camera looking East, towards the sunrise. Every day, the camera will take four high-resolution images of the sunrise, five minutes apart. The images will then be posted to this web site, for use as desktop wallpapers. (There's a little more to it than that, and you can read all about it on the technical pages if you're interested in the mechanics of it all).

Visitors, like yourself, can download the best image of the day and also leave comments for others to read. Click the download link below an image to save it to your computer and install it as your desktop wallpaper.

Windows users can also install the wallpaper updater, a small program that will automatically download and install the latest image every day. You can choose which image you want and when you want it installed - and you can even use it to download images from other web sites!

Click here for more information on the Wallpaper Updater Download and install the Wallpaper Updater for a stunning new sunrise every morning, right on your Windows desktop.
It's completely free and simple to install!
