Reflection of Mount in a pond on the Opabin Plateau

Free Desktop Wallpaper Background Image

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!

Hiking at Lake O’Hara

I recently spent a weekend with my family camping and hiking in one of the most spectacular places you could imagine visiting. Lake O’Hara, in Yoho National Park, is one of the crown jewels of the Canadian Rockies. The lake itself is a blue-green gem that is indescribably beautiful. And the entire glacial valley surrounding Lake O’Hara is filled with many other places that have to be seen to be believed. Beautiful lakes, glaciers, snow-capped alpine peaks, waterfalls, ground squirrels, pikas, marmots, birds, and so much more!

If you want to learn more about the area and the 3 days that we were lucky enough to spend there then I posted a complete writeup of the trip on my personal blog at Please feel free to read and share those articles!

This months calendar image is a photo of Schaffer Ridge and Hungabee Mountain reflected in a small pond on the Opabin Plateau above Lake O’Hara. This image was made on our 3rd and final day of the trip. We had the place almost all to ourselves and hardly saw anybody else all morning. This is one of the great things about visiting a restricted access location such as Lake O’Hara!

You can see more of images from the trip in the Fine Art Prints collection on the website:
