    Nice. Having recently been to the Yucatan, I can tell you that the beach ruins are from the Tulum site, and number 11 is Ek-Balam (a very wealthy city in it’s day). The Tulum ruins are interesting, because they are the only Mayan site overlooking the ocean. Strangely, they didn’t value the “riviera maya” the way big tourist companies do today!

    These are indeed awe inspiring both the shots and the ancient grandeur. I’ve visited Tulum and have a shot almost identical to #4. I wonder if anyone’s taken the time to CG what they might have looked like in their prime.

    This must have something to do with mafian and illuminati. We’ll see. But but. We’ll see what happens. So that’s how it is. But but. We’ll see.

    Where can I find decently formatted wallpapers like these. The ones shown don’t really look all that good when scaled up.

    Think I will stick with what the wallpaper I have, a celebration of contemporary Mesoamerican art in the form of a portrait of Salma Hayek.
