Free iPhone Wallpaper - Tin Type Pelican in Flight

free iPhone wallpaper -- Brown Pelican in Flight in Saint Petersburg Florida in tin type processing

Start your work week off with a free new wallpaper for your iPhone or iPod touch!

For several weeks I have had an ongoing project to photograph a pelican just skimming over the water's surface.  I have not yet been successful in making that image, however in that pursuit I was able to make this in-flight shot of a brown pelican.  I chose tin type processing for this image because a few weeks ago I went to an antiques fair and had a chance to browse some true tin type prints and was fascinated about how vivid some of them remained even though they were printed over a 100 years ago.  

I hope to be able to provide a shot of a pelican skimming over the water soon!  In the meantime, it is always fun for me to photograph birds in any manner.

A high resolution print of Tin Type Pelican in Flight can be purchased here.
