Ever since the dawn of wallpapers for computer screens people have wanted to depict beautiful landscape scenes of forests, waterfalls, the desert, etc. to just have something pretty on their screen. Of course, as time goes on and technology gets more advanced these pretty wallpaper pictures get more and more gorgeous.
Nowadays you can get some pretty awesome looking live landscape wallpapers that will really transform your once boring phone screen into something that looks like it should be in a museum. However, there are tons of these live landscape wallpapers but luckily for you all, we decided to compile our own list of best landscape live wallpapers so you can skip the crap and find the gold.
While a lot of the wallpapers on this list are HD, 3D, or in general “realistic”, the Andaman Paradise live wallpaper takes a different route. Instead of trying to emulate the real-life it goes an artistic route and looks like a great painting of a landscape than an actual landscape.
The wallpaper’s “live” aspect comes from the boatman floating around the Andaman Islands and you get to see different artistic drawings of the various islands. This includes trees, mountains, ponds, and more. For not being “real” the Andaman Paradise wallpaper is still excellent.
Waterfalls have always mystified people and are amazing to look at. Heck, people hike miles upon miles to see natural waterfalls in National Parks, and millions of people travel to Niagara Falls each year.
So why not have a great waterfall live wallpaper on your phone? The 3D Waterfall Pro does exactly this. The waterfall in question is a jungle waterfall with photo-realistic vegetation and water. There are also animated birds that fly through, dynamic lighting, and five different camera angles to really make the 3D Waterfall Pro look stunning.
The Mountains Now Free Wallpaper is another wallpaper that is more art than realistic. This time around the wallpaper shows a mountainous scene with a lake below with boats and cities. The wallpaper itself was inspired by the Google Now Mountains theme.
Another interesting feature is the 3D Parallax effect. There are also multiple screens to really give a panorama-type view. If you like the style that Google Now uses then the Mountains Now Free Wallpaper is a great one as well.
The Awesome Land Live Wallpaper is another wallpaper that presents a simple zen-like scene that makes for a beautiful screen. This time around it is a single tree in a field. If you don’t like the original theme of the Awesome Land Live Wallpaper there are eleven others that you can swipe through. There are also particle effects, animated birds (which you can actually control), and dynamic lighting that give the Awesome Land Live Wallpaper a great feel.
With the Siberian Night Live Wallpaper, you get to experience the coolness (literally) of Siberia in a nice cartoon fashion. You get a hilly scene with some trees and the night sky. Of course, you get tons of snow in this wallpaper of which you get to change the density, size, etc. as well as star frequency and such.
There are also multiple screens in the Siberian Night Live Wallpaper to give that panorama feel. This wallpaper really gives a wintry feel that you can have all year!
Whether it is actually falling or not you can have the spirit of autumn and the great colors in your pocket with the Autumn Grove 3D PRO live wallpaper. This wallpaper features a zen-like scene with a tree, a flowing river behind it, some stacked boulders, and more.
Winds come and sway the leaves, fireflies flutter around, the water trickles downwards and the dynamic lighting really gives the Autumn Grove 3D PRO wallpaper a great relaxing feel. You can also customize the fireflies, leaves, lighting, and more. So the relaxation is totally up to you!
The Windmill and Pond live wallpaper is another simply named wallpaper that gives exactly what its title says. The scenery in Windmill and Pond shows some rolling hills and a pond in the foreground and a massive windmill in the background.
Animation wise the windmill’s blades rotate, clouds float by, and everything is reflected on the pond’s surface. Like most of them, Windmill and Pond feature lots of customizable options from cloud frequency to star size.
Some people love aquarium wallpapers and others are bird people. For the “bird people” check out the Ducks 3D Live Wallpaper as it showcases a nice pond scene with a family of ducks. In the wallpaper, you can see all the vegetation swaying, the water, and of course the ducks.
Duck wise there are the adult ducks and also ducklings to see. Other effects the wallpaper has two seasons, fog, light effects, snow, dust, and more. Really the Ducks 3D Live Wallpaper FULL is a great wallpaper through and through.
As autumn arrives the leaves start to fall. This simple act of nature is really relaxing to people and the Falling Leaves Live Wallpaper knows this and is a wallpaper designed specifically for this! In this wallpaper, you get to see an HD tree silhouette and watch as the leaves slowly fall.
There are also different skies you can swap between and of course, you get to see the trees sway and the clouds move. Pretty much every aspect in the Falling Leaves Live Wallpaper is customizable giving you complete control.
The title for this live wallpaper is Village & Hills and that is exactly what you get. A cartoony scene of rolling hills with sprawling villages around and a rainbow to top everything off with. There is a flock of sheep that roam the countryside that you can actually control.
Clouds that pop up are randomly and uniquely generated. Another feature is a day/night cycle that has different color schemes for each. You really get a nice feel for activity in the village and feel like a whole civilization is living out in your phone with the Village & Hills live wallpaper.
