9 Awesome Wave Wallpapers to Decorate Backgrounds Like an Apple Product Shot
Apple has long had a love affair with including incredible ocean and wave imagery into their product shots. They’ve been doing it for years, with some stunning wave and surf photography featured prominently on the screens of Macs, whether it’s from the old PowerBook days, to even right now on Apple.com with the iMac, Retina MacBook Pro, and iPad Mini. Clearly there are some people at Apple who love the ocean – who doesn’t? – and there are even a few wave shots tucked away in OS X.
That brings us to this post, where we’re featuring a handful of beautiful high-resolution wave shots that could come right out of Apple product shots. This was inspired by a large amount of reader inquiries about the wave wallpaper used as the background in some recent articles and their respective screenshots of an ocean wave framing Tahiti. Whether you have an interest in ocean sports or not, you should find a wallpaper or two that tickles your desktop or homescreen.

The Great Wave
This last one is similar to a wallpaper that has been in OS X for a long time, but it’s still pretty great.
Looking for more awesome wave background pictures? Unsurprisingly, some of the best ocean wallpapers out there come from surf publications, many of which would fit right in to an Apple product shot because they’re often from the very same professional photographers. There are plenty to download at places like SurferMag and tons more at SurferMagazine, though they’ll typically include a subtle watermark on the picture.
