Half-Life Black Mesa Screens -

Unfortunately Black Mesa may never arrive since there has not been a release date and it may be another Duke Nukem Forever.
However, on youtube I managed to find a high definition graphic mod for Half-Life which is the nearest thing to Black Mesa and in my opinion almost as good as Half Life 2.
It's around 700mb and when extracted comes to around 2gb. All textures have been replaced. The enhancement includes enb series, similar to the one used in GTA IV. It makes a huge improvement to the game and it looks like a whole new engine.
I've taken some screenshots to show you the result should you not want to waste your time downloading the file.
Installation is easy since all you have to do is copy everything in the hl1 folder into your existing directory overwriting existing files.
Secondly you will need to copy the enb series into your Half-Life source engine folder. Once this has been done you simply run the Half-Life source exe file to load up the game. Enjoy!

PS. The download speed may be slightly slow since I got between 40-100kb/s download speed so be patient.
Last but least I'd like to say I've tried several different mods & graphic enhancements/hd packs for Half-Life but the one above is the best and nearest one to Black Mesa I've tried.
Last but least a great thanks to to the guy who made this mod.
Here are some screens:
