    This evocative black-and-white winter scene is a lovely desktop wallpaper for the season.

In Winter Wallpaper II landscape photographer Sven Müller gives us a somehow personal view of a quiet stream in a snow-shrouded forest. Müller's work is characterized by a comfortable sense of intimacy that makes this black-and-white image the perfect desktop wallpaper for the holiday season. It's lovely to look at, yet not overly busy and distracting.

The Winter Wallpaper II download contains the same wallpaper in three resolutions--2560 by 1600, 2560 by 1024, and 1920 by 1080 (HDTV). Just unzip the archive, right-click the file that suits your needs, and select Set as desktop background. To view more of Müller's work, visit his website (in German) or browse his DeviantArt gallery. (Note that while Müller is generously offering his work for free on PCWorld, he retains all copyright.)

If you'd like to celebrate the holiday season in a quiet and tasteful manner, load Winter Wallpaper II onto your desktop and enjoy.
