Some of the most beautiful Jeep photos I've seen are these pictures by Hideo Yoshii of his 1992 Mitsubishi J53. Whether it's in the fog or the sun, the woods or the snow, Hideo seems to have the time and the talent to find beautiful scenery and photograph his Jeep in front of it.

One of the trademarks of Hideo's photos is that regardless of how remote the location is, the Jeep is always spotless, making the picture look like something from a sales brochure.
Hideo's cameras include a Nikon F2, Contax G2, and Canon IXY Digital. The film is Fujichrome Velvia, transferred to Kodak PhotoCD.
The summer greens are reproduced nicely here; they would be easy on the eyes in a desktop photo.
The J53, built from 1986-94, was one of the last models built by Mitsubishi. It was still a pretty close relative of the CJ-3B (although powered by a 2.7-litre diesel with available turbo intercooler). The dog-eared fenders were added to the Mitsubishi Jeeps in the 1970's. Jeep production in Japan ended in 1998.
A snow scene makes a good desktop if you run your laptop on batteries; a light desktop lets you turn down the screen brightness. Download also a 1024x768 version (200K JPEG) suitable for use as a large desktop picture.

Thanks to Hideo Yoshii for the photos from his Jeep Forever website, which includes many more examples suitable for desktop use. The text is in Japanese, but you can also view the site through a translation web page, which will give an approximate and entertaining translation of the text, including Hideo's captions on his detail photos in the "Charm Point" section. -- Derek Redmond
