Free Desktop Wallpaper for April 2013

Silhouette of a Pumpjack on the Alberta Prairie

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!

The wallpaper image for this month is from a trip to the prairies to the South-East of Calgary. I went out to do some landscape photography at sunset. It was the one day of the month when the moonrise coincided with the sunset, which often leads to spectacular landscape scenery. Although I was really planning to create some really cool images that involved the rising moon, but this silhouette of a pumpjack against the setting sun was the image that jumped out at me that night. Oilfield pump jacks are scattered all over the prairie landscape, but most of us rarely see them looking as beautiful as this!
