    In this guide, we will take a look at five really fun and unique waterfall backgrounds. Each of the five I have chosen have a very different look from the others. Most can be clicked on and automatically set as your background, unless you are using certain browsers, like Google Chrome. This guide will provide you with several different wallpapers and also help you set them as your background. To use any of the backgrounds in this guide, please use the links in the Resources box, which can be found at the end of this guide.

    White Tiger Waterfall Wallpaper

    white-tiger-waterfall The white tiger waterfall wallpaper is a very beautiful wallpaper. In the background is a beautiful waterfall and walking in the water is a beautiful white tiger. This background would go great with any desktop and it is also very relaxing. It should also fit most desktops. If it doesn't fit your desktop, you could always center it and change the background color to black. That way the wallpaper will blend in with the wallpaper.

    Blue Waterfall Wallpaper

    blue-waterfall The next waterfall in our list is a blue waterfall. It is a bit hard to explain this one, however, we can explain it in one word, beautiful. This background has multiple waterfalls in one. The water is a lovely blue and the falls are a lighter blue. It appears to have the sun glaring through the waterfalls which makes it really bright and beautiful.

    Waterfall with Fairies Wallpaper

    waterfall-fairies Our next background is a blue waterfall and fairy background. There is a beautiful waterfall on the left side of the wallpaper, and then there are two fairies with sparkles coming off of each one. There is also a full moon in the back part of the wallpaper. This wallpaper is very busy, but so lovely. However, you may have a hard time seeing your desktop icons with this particular background. If you do, you can change the text color of your icons so that you can better see them. You can change the text color by opening your properties panel and then choosing your appearance section.
