A group of friends from California set out to take photos that exactly replicate Apple's iconic California-based macOS wallpapers, and they nailed almost every wallpaper, except maybe the dunes of the Mojave desert and the waves at Mavericks.
The group consisted of YouTuber Andrew Levitt, landscape photographer Taylor Gray, and videographer Andrew Phillips, and their journey took them to the Mojave Desert, Yosemite, El Capitan, and the Sierra mountains.
The friends documented the experience in a YouTube video. "I can't tell you how many hours I've spent working at my computer, seeing these pictures and daydreaming about experiencing these places for myself," Levitt said in the video. "Conveniently, they're all within a day's drive away from me, which sparked an idea for an epic road trip."
Gray made the photos from the trip available to freely download, which you can find here.
