The photo for the January 2012 wallpaper was taken in the village Volendam in the province Noord-Holland in the Netherlands.
A traditional Dutch windmill is marking one of the entry roads to the old fishing village. Volendam is not only well known for its eel fishing, but also for a long line of successful and popular musicians and singers. The Volendam style music is often referred to as the eel-sound!
