Urangan Pier at Sunrise

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!

Thoughts of Summer from Australia

This month’s calendar image comes from a recent family vacation to Australia. We spent several days visiting my Aunt in Hervey Bay, which (about 300 km North of Brisbane). We first saw the Urangan Pier on the first day of the trip and I knew that I would need to photograph it at sunrise before leaving the area. I kept putting it off because sunrise in that part of the country is at 5 AM. Ouch! Even worse was that I needed to be there at least 30 minutes prior to the actual sunrise in order to see the best light, and it was about a 30 minute drive away from where we were staying. So it was a 4:00 AM wake up time. Double ouch! I delayed and delayed until the final morning of our visit. Fortunately the sunrise was amazing and it was well worth the effort to get up so early!!
