Wallpapers of the week: mountains

By , Feb 21, 2016

Alex Muench Minimalist Wallpaper splash

The Wallpapers of the Week section continues with a reader submitted image. Throughout the week, we glean through different repositories, looking for just the right images to feature on Sundays. Considering reader-submitted images is part of the curation process. Wallpapers are best when they are properly formatted for the latest iOS devices and photo quality. Consequently, the most popular wallpapers are not ones someone just happened to snap on their latest beach vacation.

Highlighting a submission from @alexmuench, the mountain themed wallpapers include one of his latest graphics projects. Step inside to download Alex’s original and several additional mountain-scape wallpapers.

Mountain wallpapers

The first collection is called “Minimalist Wallpaper,” created by Alex, who describes the wallpaper as inspired by a blue color scheme and mountain landscape. He did a great job of achieving his goal! You can find more of Alex’s work via dribbble.

To feature Alex’s images, he connected with me via Twitter @jim_gresham. Simply send me a tweet to have your wallpapers considered or just follow along to see other images I find during the week.

    I have an iPhone 6 running on iOS 9.0.2 and after a couple of hours I change my wallpaper, it looses quality. It looks like the wallpaper’s resolution diminished. It happens with pictures I have in my camera roll as well as with the stock wallpapers. Can anyone help?

    • Alex-V

      may you need to make perspective off

      • Pedro Leite

        Thanks for the reply!

        Perspective is off already. I’m indeed jailbreaked, but can’t think of a tweak that may be interfering in the wallpaper.

        It’s strange, because the wallpaper initially seems fine, but gets fuzzy a couple of hours later…

    How to get black font on ios, like on the first image? White text on the pale blue background is hard to read.

    • Hak

      iOS automatically does it if the image is bright enough. Sometimes you have to move the picture around for it to work.

        Really? mine doesn’t. I can’t have a white wallpaper on my lockscreen cause it’s hard to read the white text!

      • Pablo

        My devices aren’t doing that, when I choose the first wallpaper on this post, in the selection screen it appears with black text, but when I set the image as wallpaper it appears with white text on my home and lock screen, I don’t know how to fix it

    Took this from my apartment short while ago!

    • Jayy

      Amazing view even though it probably does t always look like that!

        You would be surprised how often I wake up to it like this. It’s always so foggy where I live sometimes I can’t even see out the window. But thanks 🙂

        Me all I see is buildings, people and cars. In fact I’ve never seen a mountain in person, only in movies, and pictures. But no problem, great picture!
