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.

    There are a few exceptions but geez we will soon need sunglasses to look at pictures !

    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 :)
