Get a Stunning New El Capitan Wallpaper of Glacier Point from Beta 6

El Capitan Glacier Point night time view

Apple is known for choosing phenomenal imagery as wallpapers, and keeping with that long-running theme, they’ve added a beautiful new wallpaper to OS X El Capitan Developer Beta 6. If you like pictures of starry nights and amazing scenery, you’ll really enjoy this one.

Of course, not everyone is eligible to run the Developer Beta builds of OS X 10.11, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait until the fall and the final version of OS X El Capitan to enjoy this gorgeous image as your desktop background.

Just click on the thumbnail or mirror links below to launch into the full sized version at 5120×3200:

For those who are less familiar with the scenic wonders of California, this vivid capture is of a clear night sky over Yosemite valley, with the various granite formations and canyons prominently featured. The picture looks to have been taken from the rightfully popular jaw-dropping Glacier Point viewpoint up high in Yosemite National Park, yes, the same park which has inspired the names of both OS X Yosemite and OS X El Capitan.

The wallpaper looks absolutely fantastic on desktop Macs, and equally impressive on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Enjoy!

Thanks to @mapet86 for the topmost desktop image and for pointing this out on Twitter:

And thanks to a Davis for pointing us towards the MacRumors forum and IMGUR mirror locations of full resolution versions.

    Will Apple add to Dynamic Desktops for OS X? I also hope that more will be coming for iOS. Too few available with iOS 8.

    You say it looks good on a desktop, which is may do, but it’s not designed for a desktop as its dimensions don’t fit properly on my 28″ 2009 iMac screen. I have stretch it to fill the screen.
