Best iPad 1 Background Picture Ever? A Beautiful Night Sky Image!

Sure the original iPad wallpaper background is phenomenal, but there are a lot of other fantastic potential background pictures out there for iPad too!

Case in point: A friend of mine just sent me this absolutely amazing picture of the night sky over Maui taken by photographer Eric Rolph.

Maybe I am an Apple nerd, but the first thing that I thought was: this will make an awesome iPad background picture!

Click through the image or on the Flickr link to get the full size version, it’s rather large at 1267×1900, but it does indeed make an awesome iPad background pic.

If you want some other really cool pics, check out Eric’s photostream on Flickr, it’s full of amazing photography.

iPad friendly resolutions: we have received a few requests to provide the image at a more iPad friendly 1024×1024 resolution, so we cropped the picture into two variations. Click through the images below for them:
