Hello,

With the new iMac on the apple website there is a couple of wallpapers showing off on the site. I was wondering if anyone know where to get high rez versions of the wallpapers?

Here below you can find images to some of the wallpapers I was talking about.

Thanks for reading this post and I hope you have a great day.

I'm hoping someone might be able to find it in their developer account. I would also love these wallpapers, although #2 looks like the OS X Lion/Mountain Lion wallpapers.

i wanted to have that surfer-wallpaper too!
i was searching for quite a while and finally found it! (well... not a 5k+ version though-.-)

->i took the presskit for the retina imac from the apple-website http://www.apple.com/pr/products/
->perspective-transformed it in photoshop
->picture-searched it via google and it gave me the name of the location and a couple alternative shots of the same location.

after some googling i finally found the photographer and the shot i was searching for...
illume surf by chris burkard
https://500px.com/photo/74727727/illume-surf-by-chris-burkard

if anyone finds a HiRes/wallpaperworthy version, PLEASE tell me! :)

also, here is the same picture on google+ including metadata
https://plus.google.com/photos/+Chr...lbums/6072331998989785009/6072332312539367842

EDIT: i found a bigger version... 8mb... i kinda hoped it would be a little crisper...

Does this help? :)
I'm looking for the other wallpaper, but no luck so far. If you find it, please return the favour!

Damn! I think PrvtPrivate's find might be more HD, although the colouring isn't quite the same. Easily editable though. sorry /-:

Although not specifically what you're looking for, I also found this, used in the new MacBook marketing... Looks great on my iPad Air 2. Unfortunately, the surf shot, as gorgeous as it is, doesn't work very well on an iPad with perspective switched on. Great elsewhere though!

Found the first image (Moraine Lake) here: http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/photo/moraine-lake-royalty-free-image/524395633

Unfortunately far from free. :(

Far from free is an understatement! Damn shame too - I've been looking everywhere for this image in high res. Found a few lower res, but it's not the same. If you have any luck finding a HD version, PLEASE let me know - I'm going crazy!!! This is the best I could do! One is in a higher quality but not exactly the same shot (still gorgeous though), the other is the best I could find of the image in question. Sigh. image.jpeg image.jpeg
