Thank you :) The first 3 pictures are from Brighton (UK), then it´s Hyde park in London, street is from Highgate (London) and the last one is from Hallstatt (Austria).
Actually I have more photos which could be turned into the backgrounds but I´m not sure if somebody would use pictures of mountains and forests. But I have some streets too. Also some photos I took in Hallstatt could be very nice fantasy backgrounds, I think. But it was foggy so I´m afraid of its quality. It´s probably the same like at the last photo I posted here.

These are amazing! And I may use them if I resurrect my first idea that was to be a VOLTAGE-style otome based around a cruise ship adventure :)

Well, I admit I wasn´t able to find out what´s voltage style exactly but maybe some of the next photos could be suitable too ;) There are also another pictures. It´s mix from Croatia, Czech republic, Slovakia and UK.

Thanks for sharing these. There's a couple that look like they'll work really well for my in - very slow - progress VN.

If you're willing to post them, I would be very interested in your forest pictures, too.

I was searching for the photos of forest and I´m afraid they were deleted by accident because I had some problems with my PC lately :( I found only a few pictures which could be considered as photos of forest - see below. But I would be happy to take some pictures of forest as I will have more time :wink:

Also, I added one bonus photo (the last one).

Wow. I don't have any use for them at the moment, but these are some fantastic photos. Kinda makes me sad that I can't use them. D:

I think there's a real value to simply taking photographs of scenic areas and letting people filter them. Thank you for that. I look forward to seeing more of them!
