I have a program on my computer called DisplayFusion which pulls a random wallpaper every hour for each of my monitors from this pool:
Warning, 1400+ unsorted thumbnails on one page totaling roughly 30 MB, opening this link will certainly destroy a smart phone or tablet and its data plan if you are using one of those, and could also melt down your browser, internet connection and or entire desktop PC if it is really old.
You have been warned. Click a thumbnail for the full size image (note, many of these images have been cropped/resized to fit my 1080p and 1200p monitors, different/higher resolutions may exist elsewhere on the internet).

Feel free, I wouldn't have uploaded them otherwise (it also serves as a backup for my own copy). I used to manually pick my wallpapers, but once I built up enough of a collection having them on an automatic hourly rotation is a lot nicer. And with a library this large, even at that frequency of rotation on two monitors it still takes upwards of 3-4 months to cycle through all of them and start over. I never get bored of a particular background anymore.

On my work PC, (which it is feasable other people may have to use at some point) I have:
back.jpg
I generated it in Gimp using the flame tool. It takes only a few seconds and you have quite a cool background.

On my laptop I have similar but without the help text at the bottom....

Another different of the same:

Eh?
