categories of tasteful wallpaper (bis or so)

Post#1 by francois » 22 Jun 2017, 20:53

There is a need to get really nice wallpapers. The sites for such images are not always equal in quality and there is even in the good ones a quite variable span of tasty pictures. I propose that you share within this post the links that you have found for your favorite wallpapers.You could also list you favorite wallpaper site.

Try to present images that are as big as possible so that they could cover widescreens (1900 x 1200 or more)

I will classify the wallpapers that you propose under one of the following categories:

-sunset and sunrise
-mountains
-countryside
-seashore
-animal
-plants
-cities and buildings
-figurative art
-modern art

Providing feedback on the wallpapers is welcome.

^ First link u/s. Got me into google search. Second bit better, but what I really meant as example was the kde5 wallpaper, the one with the quill. Wall paper does not need to be kde5, but just soft light pastel/s.
