Dreary, rainy weather isn’t always bad, especially when hundreds of Italian horses decide to pose in it. Use it as a metaphor for your week ahead—sure, Monday morning is a dreary time, but there’s always something beautiful waiting in the rain. (That was overly poetic, but hey. It’s fine.)

This weekend’s wallpaper comes to us from Tom England and features a Ferrari 458 Italia, shot during a snowfall in the Canadian Province of Nova Scotia. It’s a 562-horsepower beast with a 4.5-liter V8 engine, and the 2014 version made our list of best cars, trucks and bikes we drove—and rode—last year.

Speaking of the Ferrari 458 Italia, a kid set his on fire last year. Not a figurative fire while out making hot laps on the race track or anything, but a real one—the 20-year-old son of a Swiss millionaire wanted a new Ferrari, so he deliberately torched his in order to achieve his goals. Not to mention, he had 14 other cars to choose from.

Have a great week ahead, and never forget about the beauty waiting in the midst of the storm. No promises that beauty is in the form of a Ferrari 458, though. If you do happen to come across one of those, please do not set it on fire.
