Two Nice Pics Added to the Bing Dynamic Theme

This week Microsoft has added two new images to the Bing Dynamic theme. The Redmond-based software giant can do that because the Bing Dynamic theme is RSS-fed; this means that new images are added to the theme pack via an RSS feed. Two new pics have been added this week, and two new pics have been added last week as well.

Putting the spotlight on the pics that were released this week, the first of the two new images features a mama grizzly bear with her four cubs. The photo was shot near Moraine Creek, Katmai National Park, Alaska.
Here’s the image I am talking about.

The second image that’s been added to the Bing Dynamic theme presents Angel Falls, a spectacular waterfall in Bolivar, Venezuela. At 989m or 3.212feet high, Angel Falls or Paradise Falls is the highest waterfall in the world. “The height of the fall is so great that, before getting anywhere near the ground, much of the water is evaporated or carried away as a fine mist by the strong wind,” says Wikipedia. Here’s how the Angel Falls image that has been added to the Bing Dynamic theme looks like.


Last week two other images were added to the Bing Dynamic theme. The first image presents the hyacinth and tulip Keukenhof Gardens in Lisse, Netherlands; the second image present a container ship being loaded at the Port of Los Angeles, California. You can check out both these images below.




When it was released in the fall of 2010, the Bing Dynamic theme was the first RSS-fed theme to make it to the Personalization Gallery. Microsoft used the RSS feed to add two new images to the theme pack for a period of three months – two pics per week for the duration of the three months.

It seems that a lot of Windows 7 users took a shine to the Bing Dynamic theme and demanded Microsoft bring it back to life. That is precisely what Microsoft did. Check out the theme’s official description on the Personalization Gallery:
“It's back! Due to popular demand, we are relaunching this free Windows 7 theme that sends you two new photos from Bing every week, updated automatically through an RSS feed. If you already downloaded it last fall, no need to do it again, as the theme you already have will be updated with new Bing images automatically.”

There is another RSS-fed theme you may want to check out – Bing Maps Aerial Imagery. You can get it from the Personalization Gallery here.
