As a little bonus for my friends and followers every month I provide a free image for use as your desktop background wallpaper on your computer, mobile phone, or tablet. Each beautiful photo is a picture that I have created and it always includes a calendar overlay for the month. I know that I’m always looking for a calendar and having one on my desktop or phone wallpaper is very convenient!

NOTE – You can purchase prints for any of the previous months calendar images:

Free Desktop Wallpaper for March 2019 – Trumpeter Swan

This month's calendar features a Trumpeter Swan in the Bow River near Carburn Park in SE Calgary. Migration season is just around the corner but with the extreme cold weather that we've had for weeks in Calgary this bird seems to be a little overly optimistic. Having siad that it didn't seem to be bothered by the cold at all and was happily eating and preening in the water.

Free Desktop Wallpaper for February 2019 – Bragg Creek Moose

This month's calendar features a cow moose that I came across out near West Bragg Creek. Interestingly there is a "Moose Crossing" warning sign just down the road from this spot. That never happens! I had actually seen a cow and a calf in the same place about a week earlier and so it's possible that this is the same cow. There was no sign of the calf on this trip though.

Free Desktop Wallpaper for January 2019 – Bow River Ice Crystals

This month's calendar features an image from the Bow River in Calgary. It got very cold and very windy over the last few days and as a result some really cool ice crystals formed on the surface near the shore of the Bow River. It mostly looks like wind blown snow until you get really close and then you realize that it really is crystallized ice. The patterns in the ice are very interesting and they look amazingly different from different angles and depending on where the sun hits them!

Free Desktop Wallpaper for December 2018 – Railway Sunset

This month's calendar features an image from the prairies east of Calgary with the last light of the sun reflecting off the train tracks. I used to see sights like this on an almost daily basis in the winter while driving to or from work. How many times have you seen something like this and just kept going because you were too busy to stop? Sometimes you just need to slow down, take it all in, and enjoy the ride...

Free Desktop Wallpaper for November 2018 – Calgary Central Library

This month's calendar features the brand new Downtown Central Library (that just opened in Calgary after 4 years of construction) with an LRT train passing by as it comes out of the tunnel below the building. The building is visually stunning, both inside and out, and features some amazing architecture. It will be a fantastic place for Calgarians to visit and to show off to visitors and tourists that come to town. If you haven't had a chance to see it yet you really need to make plans to get down to the new library for a tour!
