Desktop Background From the Deep

I snagged this gem from the Deep Horizons spillcam site a while back; it’s a screen grab at 1600×1200 with all the extraneous junk cropped off. Scaling it back to fit a 4:3 screen doesn’t do it a bit of damage: it looks just as weird.

Something from Alien, perhaps?
