A Collection of 20 Stunning Nature Inspired Desktop Backgrounds

By   |  Stashed in Inspiration

Desktop backgrounds are a huge source of inspiration for me. I’m constantly changing mine in an effort to keep things fresh, and keep my creativity flowing. Because of my quasi-obsessive behavior and all the cool wallpaper and photography sites out there, I’ve developed quite a large library of photos.

I thought I’d share some of my favorites here, check out this stunning collection of nature inspired backgrounds!

    Wow, these are stunning!

    From a graphic design point of view, great photography means so much. Trying to make great compositions with amateur photography makes the job so much harder if not impossible.
