6 Beautiful Abstract HD wallpapers

It has been a little while since we have done a wallpaper roundup, but for those who are bored with their existing device backgrounds we’ve got six beautiful high resolution choices to pick from to spruce things up. They’re all following a loosely abstract focused theme, which makes them particularly good for iOS 7 devices, one of which is a new wallpaper that arrived in the recent iOS 7.1 beta 2 build, and two are nebula shots from NASA, which are so out of this world they are basically abstractions to us Earth dwellers anyway. Each of the images are large enough resolution to be appropriate wallpaper or desktop backgrounds for just about any screen size, whether you have a retina iPad, Retina MacBook Pro, a 27″ iMac, 11″ MacBook Air, or anything in between.

As usual, click on any large thumbnail pic below to open the full-sized wallpaper image.

(Quick side note for iOS 7 users who are annoyed with the wallpaper automatically resizing itself; you can stop that behavior by resizing the wallpaper yourself to the precise screen resolution, turning off parallax, or using a screen shot trick for an instant perfect size capture, each of these methods is described here.

    Naturally this works best if you appreciate astronomy, but Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) is a great source for background pictures.
