Fantastic Wallpapers That Will Blow Your Desktop Away

Advertisement

We love desktop wallpapers. And we love beautiful ones most. And although we monthly publish desktop wallpapers of our readers (desktop wallpaper calendar feature1), we thought that it would be nice to provide our contributors with some fresh inspiration and our readers with some nice wallpaper update for a lousy Monday.

The wallpapers for this post were selected over a long period of time; they cover mainly nature, abstract and digital art (further collections will be coming if you are interested). We’ve tried to pick only the most beautiful ones and hopefully you won’t be disappointed.

Below we present a showcase of over 50 fantastic wallpapers that will blow your desktop away. Most of them are in HD and will make your desktop look as nifty as it is possible. Because the resolutions are so high, if one doesn’t fit your screen, use your favorite image editor to refine its dimensions.

    I’m really loving the haters here, more so as one of those wp’s is mine :P
    Fact : haven’t been using icons on my desktop since 2003 and those were the times of XP. Now with 7 out, there is no excuse to have them cluttering up your desktop. If you use a calendar as your desktop wallpaper…you may not find what you want here…more so if you want something simple so that it’s not in the way, are you really looking at your desktop when you work? Does it help your workflow to stare at your desktop all the time?
