Free Desktop Wallpaper for August 2012 - Common Orange Daylily

Wild Common Orange Daylily at Grotto Canyon

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 features a Common Orange Daylily from a family hike we did up Grotto Canyon in Bow Valley Provincial Park (near Canmore). This is a beautiful little hike up through a narrow canyon. There were several rock climbers in action along the canyon walls and plenty of beautiful sights to see. Waterfalls, ancient pictographs, and a lovely cold and clear stream burbling all the way down the canyon. It’s not a difficult hike, but it was a great way to spend a family afternoon.

Although these plants are considered to be an invasive species they are extremely beautiful and I have spent hours photographing them in the past. They are very hardy and grow in a wide variety of terrain. The next time you go for a hike in the Canmore area be sure to look out for them!
