Keep them coming, please! I collect these and other interesting pictures and have them as a randomized wallpaper each time I boot up my computer. I also have them and more on continuous slideshow display on my big LCD picture display (19-inch; right now desktop-driven). Going to cobble a 24-inch one with a Raspberry Pi soon. Anyone who visits is wowed by the display.

Mark, those are wonderful creations! I wonder if they are available as a screensaver file or is one expected to construct one's one screensaver from the individual photos you have supplied? Thanks for humoring a relative newbie.

I've never played the game, but I love these shots! Have one on the desktop right now.

Dead End Thrills habitually burns out high-end video cards taking shots like these. His Skyrim shots have amazing draw-distance, able to stand near Whiterun and see to the sea.

Good shots. Not sure how interested I'd be in more though only because I've got around 500 of my own I need to go through. Love this game!

These would be great in a Windows 7 theme in HD. I'm whittling away at my backlog of games. Skyrim is #1 on my list to buy. Love the ES series. My Morrowind character was ridiculous. All stats maxed. Every area explored. All quests done, except for the ones that could not be completed. (Typically I found and sold an artifact before I got the quest.) I put waaay too many hours into that game. I logged a lot of Oblivion hours too, but not nearly what I put into Morrowind. I predict an upset spouse when Skyrim gets in the house. :)

I would love to see more. This game has wonder and beauty no other game has ever matched.

For this gallery I concentrated on landscapes, but I could take some time to capture screenshots of other interesting sites in the game. That is if there is any interest.

Thanks for the gallery, Mark! Will be playing the PC game later tonight.
