At the top of Mount Oso, in California, there is a Canon A60 digital camera looking East, towards the sunrise. Every day, the camera will take four high-resolution images of the sunrise, five minutes apart. The images are then posted to the web site, for use as desktop wallpapers.
Visitors can download the best image of the day and also leave comments for others to read. There is even a Windows (of course) client application that will automatically download and install the latest wallpaper every day.
