40+ Amazing Scenic Photography Wallpapers

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.

I love using and learning Photoshop, and I also enjoy creating resources to share with the world. I am at my happiest when I have free time to further explore all that Photoshop has to offer and learn more about its powerful built-in tools. I hope people enjoy either using or learning from my free resources, and welcome any hints and tips - and of course, if you would like to offer a free resource on this site, please don't hesitate to contact me (top right of the page).
