Last year, Youtube user and photographer Andrew Levitt teamed up with friends Jacob Phillips and Taylor Gray to recreate all Apple default wallpapers, including macOS Catalina, according tomedia reports. In June, Apple released macOS Big Sur on WWDC. Then, in just a week, without any preparation, they set out to recreate Apple’s latest default wallpaper.
The mission is even more challenging, and you can see that macOS Big Sur’s default wallpaper shows the rugged mountains in the central coast of California, 4,000 feet above the ocean.
After some research, Levitt and his friends found it impossible for a drone to take this picture, and it’s illegal to fly it off the coast of Bir Sur anyway. So the team contacted a helicopter pilot who, as it happens to be, was the pilot who flew the plane for the Apple photographer.
On the first attempt, Levitt had to deal with the fog, but on the second attempt they managed to capture the desired shot.
