No, this thread is not about the update for Mac OS X. I apologize if this has already been discussed, but I'm dying to know who the photographer was whose photo Apple used.

I realize that it's likely severely post-processed, as that depth-of-field, color, and clarity is shockingly idyllic. Still, if that photo turns out to be legitimate, I'd love to see more work from the photographer. Anyone know anything? Is it just fake?

I had been wondering the same thing, also wondering where it was taken (guessing it's captive, maybe from that place in the States that has a all the big cats on amassive reserve? Forget where it is now though).

Most likely either Triple D Game Farm near Kalispell, Montana, or Animals Of Montana.

Nobody else finds it amusing that Apple bought the photograph for their box art from a company owned by their largest competitor?
