Most people will spend a good deal of the time spent on their computer looking at their desktop, so it is logical that a beautiful, calming wallpaper can be conducive to productivity… whatever the activity may be.
It is also nice to have a good selection of wallpapers for those who like to change their desktop appearance often.
Here I have collected a selection of scenic photography wallpapers which have either not been Photoshopped, or have been very sympathetically enhanced.
Some, but not all, are available in a variety of resolutions, and all are freely available for download for use as a wallpaper.
