The Site

Big Backgrounds was started in the summer of 2006 by me, Nick Pettit, the founder of While vacationing in the mid-western United States, taking many photographs of beautiful desert scenery, I realized that many other people all over the world would probably like to see what I was seeing right then. I then realized that in fact, I had thousands of images from my travels to all parts of the globe. I thought, "Wouldn't it be great if I could share all my pictures with everyone?" Hence, the site you are enjoying right now! There's nothing quite like being there, but with backgrounds like the ones on this site, you can experience the next best thing: Big Backgrounds!
