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!
Glowing Halo around the Sun
This months calendar image features a glowing halo around the sun on an icy cold day in winter. Halos are created by light interacting with ice crystals in the atmosphere and can form at any time of year but are much more common on very cold days in the winter. This image was made on the prairies south and east of the Calgary city limits on a beautiful winter day.
You can purchase a print of this image or any of the previous months calendar images…
