Beach Sunsets: Another Windows 7 Theme that Focuses on the Beauty of the Ocean

After the Surfing and after the Sailing themes, Redmond-based software giant Microsoft has made yet another Windows 7 theme that focuses on the beauty of the ocean available to the public. The new theme I am talking about is called Beach Sunsets and, as its name so adequately points out, it is a nice collection of sunset images. Here's a small preview.

The theme features the HDR and double-exposure images taken by Josh Sommers, photographic and digital artist discovered on Flickr by Jennifer Shepherd. Jennifer Shepherd is the site manager for the Windows Personalization Gallery, site that has more than 100 themes to offer to Windows 7 users. The themes are offered free of charge for Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate.

Getting back to the Beach Sunsets theme, here’s its official description as presented on the Personalization Gallery:
“A special multi-exposure technique by photographer Josh Sommers fully brings out the rich Pacific textures and colors of Dillon Beach, Maui, and other scenic spots in California and Hawaii in this free theme for Windows 7.”

The abovementioned Surfing theme is a collection of top quality images of waves. You can see some pretty awesome waves in this theme – to get a better idea of what I am talking about, check out the Surfing theme preview below. The nice thing about this theme is that it isn’t just a collection of great looking images. The Surfing theme comes with a cool sound-scheme – you can hear seagulls calling, you can hear the crashing waves, and you can hear drops of water. Get the theme and listen to the sounds for yourself.



I also mentioned the Sailing theme above. This theme is a collection of top quality images that present ships sailing on the open seas. It features the same sound-scheme as the Surfing theme.

“The surfing theme puts you right in the tubes, hearing the roar of the waves and seeing the sun sparkling through the water,” explained Jennifer Shepherd, site manager for the Windows Personalization Gallery. “The sailing theme puts you on deck for a virtual voyage from Boracay in the South Pacific to Bar Harbor, Maine, with stopovers in ports of call such as Antigua, Sardinia, and the Maldives.”

A preview of the Sailing theme is available below.
