Smoky Skies

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!

Forest Fire Smoke in Southern Alberta

This months calendar image comes from a recent hike near the Mesa Butte Recreation Area in south Kananaskis. The hazy skies were a result of the forest fire smoke that had drifted across the province from major fires in Washington State. Although the smoke was far from the worst it had been, it was still heavy enough to cause the distant mountains to disappear in the haze. The smoke continued to clear through the day and was almost entirely gone by nightfall. While it lasted it helped to make a very interesting image!
