50 Remarkable Nature Wallpapers

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 that emphasize the variety and beauty of nature. [Content Care Nov/15/2016]

    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 :)
