Wallpapers of the week: natural photography

Continuing to grow with demand and reader input, the Wallpapers of the Week section is a quite popular place on the site for downloads. Additionally, the comment sections are becoming a repository of reader screenshots and images. For that, we thank you.

Over the past two weeks, super hero packs dominated the wallpapers of the week. They were met with much fan fair but it was suggested to move away from “themed” wallpaper sets. While I fully anticipate going back to the wallpaper themed pack options in the future, it is time for a change. Instead of created images, natural photography is stunning, when done correctly…


Today there are two featured artists for the below photographs. First, “Sunset Of The Gods” captures a double lightning strike during a thunderstorm. Setting his camera to auto shoot every second with a longer exposure time, Isaac Sloan managed to snap a stunning image that is almost too good to be real. You can find him @elorest or his personal site.

Second, the colorful London Eye image is the handy work of amateur photographer George Johnson. “Twilight’s Eye” was taken on a cold December morning.  Keep up with George @fuzzyp1ggy or his personal site.
