Bring the beauty of nature to your wallpaper this Earth Day

Happy Earth Day!

This oft-ignored holiday deserves better than to be relegated to documentary films and the occasional tree-planting! This is the only life-sustaining planet we’ve got (for now), and it’s our job to love and protect our home planet. There are plenty of charities that you can donate to, such as the World Wildlife Fund and the aptly-named Earth Day Network, and you should consider using Amazon Smile so that every time you buy a new case, cable, or some leftover Cadbury eggs, a portion of your sale is donated to charity! Even if you’re not quite up to putting your money where your mouth is, at least put a reminder to be kind to the planet on your home screen, where these wallpapers can inspire you to do more and remind us the beauty that surrounds us on this little blue ball.

Regular forests are mysterious all on their own, but bamboo forests like these have mysteriousness on top of that mysteriousness. Everything is so green, so straight, so orderly… but then we have hints of tilted, darker stalks hiding just off the path. What’s their story? And where does this path lead? An ancient ritual at a sacred shrine? A festival with some mischievous island spirits? Spin your own tales off this wallpaper every time you see it on your screen!

Summer may be here before we know it, but gosh darn it, it’s still spring and spring means wildflowers! And this patch blooming on a side of a mountain, with yet another mountain looming in the background, just makes me want to jump up and go for a nice long walk… and sprain my ankle walking along those bright rocks on the right side of the shot.

While it may not have a fire-breathing dragon hoarding gold inside, you can’t help but wonder what mysteries these mountains are hiding in their mist. It’s a truly breathtaking sight, and you have to wonder just what kind of stones the people who decided to climb this had.

You’ve probably seen Trey Ratcliff’s work before, especially if you have a Chromecast in your house, as his work is quite often featured on Backdrop. He’s a prolific photographer that organizes photowalks and other photography events around the world, and he posts full-resolution photos on Google+ because they’re one of the few networks that mean it when they say unlimited photo sizes. Take a peek at his posts, you will not be disappointed.

The sun, the sea, the spray… Summer is just around the corner; why are we not at the ocean right now? Well, until we can go feel the salty sea air, the wind blowing in our face, at least we can have a bit of the ocean on our phones (y’know, without shorting it out). Whether you’re dreaming of catch the perfect wave or maybe catching sight of a lovely mermaid on the other side of one, keep your dreams and your sights set on the sea!
