50 Remarkable Nature Wallpapers

Advertisement

When it comes to beauty nothing can beat the beauty of nature. Although we, designers, can derive inspiration from almost everything, nature often manages to provide us with beautiful eye-catching perspectives we would never have explored otherwise. We have collected hundreds of wallpapers already (see links below). In this post we would like to focus on wallpapers which emphasize the variety and beauty of nature.

This post showcases 50 remarkable nature desktop wallpapers. This post covers various themes and subjects; we have included both photographic and artistic (photo-manipulated) wallpapers. Hopefully, everybody will find something from himself / herself.

    Most of the wallpapers are incredibly beautiful, altough I think – as others mentioned here – that the contrast of the pictures in the last years immensively increases, what makes natural pictures a bit unnatural. This is of course also a product of the possibilities of digital environments and it’s usage. It is definitely different to analogue photography.
    However, this is a great list to choose one or more of my future wallpapers :)

    Though I usually love SM articles, I must admit that this review is quite deceiving. Being a environmental person, I have collected hundreds of nature wallpapers and the one presented here are mostly boring and/or common (all but both beautiful bird pic: the jay and the hummingbird).

    What about the National Geographic archive of pictures offered as wallpapers? These are some of the most stunning nature photographs you can get!
