Free Desktop Wallpaper for April 2012 from Riverwood Photography

Bighorn Sheep Grazing in a Field

Free Desktop Wallpaper

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. 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 is very convenient!

This months wallpaper image is from a recent family trip to Canmore. We had a lazy day in the mountains and decided to take the old Highway 1A home instead of the main route. The old highway is always a treasure trove of scenic viewpoints, beautiful birds, and plenty of animals. In particular it is almost a guarantee to see Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep while driving the section of the highway between Canmore and Exshaw.

We found this herd of sheep in the expected location and we stopped to enjoy the scene for a few minutes. I hope you will enjoy it too!
