Remove this from the markup: <img src="images/rw-bg.jpg" id="bg" alt="">

Keep that image as a background to the body tag just the way you have it.

Add background-size: cover to the body css.

Try this

body {
background:url('images/your_image.jpg') no-repeat center center fixed;
-webkit-background-size: cover;
-moz-background-size: cover;
background-size: cover;
}
