Flicking through them I don't think I'd class just about any of them as "interesting". Just very bland.

I get them from:

Probably the best place for landscapes.

IMO, all the posts in this section of the forum should (when possible) list and/or link to-

DE/WM.
DE/WM theme.
Compositor (if used).
Any other extras (conky configs, etc).

BTW, here is my current desktop background-

I'm a sucker for fractals.

Social Wallpapering is another good resource for backgrounds/wallpapers.

I get most of mine from http://www.reddit.com/r/wallpapers and http://boards.4chan.org/wg/ (4chan is probably NSFW).
