Anyone Know Where To Download Zebra Retina Wallpaper?

Basically what the title says...
Anyone know where I can download it? Or is anybody willing to share if they already have the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display?

It isn't a wallpaper, that is Aperture.

It's pretty obvious what you were referring to.

Right-clicking on the image in your post and selecting "Google this Image" leads me to this (no higher resolution found):
Thumb resize.
TinEye will do the same thing.

It's a Steve Bloom photo. I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's not a free wallpaper download (legally at any rate). However, I'm glad I found his site, I'm definitely going to buy his book.

GGJstudios, thanks for the tip on the google chrome search by image extension. That's amazing, I had no idea that existed.

For their marketing photography, Apple typically arranges for rights directly with well-known photographers, the only desktops they typically show are the default ones such as the space-themed wallpaper.

I've had pretty good luck finding good wallpapers on interfacelift and wallbase.cc

Google Image search "Zebra 2880 x 1800"?

A photo that isn't a wallpaper and is likely not on a retina MBP as a wallpaper.

Thank you so much! I emailed them and they said it would be 50! ($76!) to use as a wallpaper, which is a little steep just for a wallpaper!

Here is what I have as a reply from the people at Steve Bloom :

We are a rights-protected image library and therefore have a minimum fee of
50 UK pounds (approx US$76, or 62 Euros) for any use of our images. The
minimum would apply for use of an image as an individual computer wallpaper
/ screensaver.

LOL, anybody want to buy a wallpaper ?

Bloom should watermark and give away for free

Bloom should put out a version with a small watermark with his website and then post this image for free.

Mind you, im not suggesting he give away all his work or even an original version of the zebras photo. But a free version with a watermark would start to appear on a lot of MacBooks (even on some Retina-wannabes, and iPads too), and I'm sure would drive some considerable traffic to his website and follow up sales.

Here's hopeing.

Funny people are more than willing to drop $2K and spiralling up on a Mac, yet are unwilling to pay $76 for the work of a professional photographer be it limited or unlimited access, guaranteeing a level of quality and exclusivity...
