    Where is the picture taken used for the 13" MacBook Pro with retina display wallpaper

    I'm having a discussion with colleagues whether the wallpaper used for the 13" MacBook Pro with retina display on Apple's website is a real location on earth or whether it is fabricated. Anyone know?

    I'm referring to the river running through the orange rock formations (on the right):

    We go out west often for photography. While I can not state a lat and long, it looks like any number of locations on the Colorado river. There would be no need to fake such a shot.

    I have all of the linked images saved in my storage. There's not really alot of images out there, compared to the lower resolution images atleast.

    Does anyone know where I can find the ones Apple use on their website? I'm specifically looking for the surfing image but if there's some sort of album that would be great.

    I found the zebra one out there, and I'm using it on my non-retina 13"...

    These images are for the iPad Retina but you can try on the MacBook Pro.

    Here's 2 versions of the same photo , one optimized for Retina, the other for a standard iPad.
    Can you see the difference?

    Full Retina Resolution:

    Want to see how sharp an iPad Retina screen can be, try this with single pixel text:

    Yeah the Apple photo of the canyon looks like Lake Powell. You can hire Jet Ski's there for about $150 a day and ride through all the slot canyons - awesome day out :)
