The hot summer months call for cool and calm of the ocean, lake, or river. It is looking to be a record breaking summer and the water can offer solace to a heat. You’re in the right place to cool down your Home or Lock Screen, thanks to the iDownloadBlog Wallpapers of the Week.
These calming water wallpapers for iPhone offer the respite you need.
Water wallpapers for iPhone
I stumbled across the set of incredible water focused wallpapers by following @NickNice85. He seems to curate a majority of his collection from unsplash.com, a license free photographers’ collection. However, I cannot find original artist attribution. Nick optimizes the images to fit well on mobile devices. You can find a link to his Google photos wallpaper collection in his twitter bio.
My favorite of the below selection is the ocean pier. There are a few things that make me prefer this one among the collection. Mostly, the grey and blue body of water contrasting with the orange sunrise (or set?). The orange sunrise then has a naturally smooth gradient into a very light blue, which yet again contrasts the water. The pier is perfectly centered, which works really well on an iPhone Lock Screen.
You could use it as a Home Screen background too and the pier will mostly fit the gap between your middle two apps.
If you want to influence the iDB wallpaper gallery, then make sure to catch up with me via on Twitter, where I curate the collection. Maybe you have some of your images, know where to find a batch of great images, or have an idea for a genre, send them along and I will incorporate them into the schedule! We can’t do it without our dedicated wallpaper fans!
