January Calendar Correction

A faithful follower of my blog brought to my attention that my desktop calendar for January included a February with a couple of extra days!! Perhaps it was an unconscious attempt to add days to the year – Lord knows I could use them!

The corrected image has been uploaded to the Free Calendar page. Sorry for any inconvenience. Thank you, Scott, for letting me know so I could make the correction.

January 2015

Happy New Year! Here is a desktop calendar for you to enjoy. You can download specific screen resolutions from the Free Calendar dropdown menu or click here.

This creek runs north out of Sandbar Lake into Little Indian. The trees along its banks are typically frosted like this from November though April. Since it is only about a 15 minute drive from home, I visit frequently. Last winter there was so much snow even with snowshoes it was mid thigh deep. This season we have had so little snow that getting down to the water’s edge did not even require snowshoes! I plan to get back there as soon as the temperatures rise to at least -15C.2015-01_1440x900

A new year!
Will you be making changes to your life? Have you set goals? Are there exciting events ahead? I hope your answer to all three questions is yes.
Enjoy!

December 2014

The final month of 2014 is around the corner!

For the past few years, I’ve made photo calendars for gifts and for purchase. This December’s desktop calendar image (above) is the one I used for December in my printed 4″ x 6″ 2014 calendar.
2014-12
It took most of a previous winter to capture the shot I planned. I hung the oversized ornaments on a tree in near our home in early November and didn’t get the right combination of snow on the ground and large flakes in the air until March!

My 2015 calendars are ready for purchase. They retail for $10 and include a heavy a magnet clip. To have them shipped with the magnet clip would double the cost so I am offering to mail within Canada and the US without the magnet for $10 including postage. Payment would need to be made by e-transfer. Use the Contact Me link at the top of the page for more information.

March 2014

I waited all February for a mild (above -15 C) day to capture an image for March’s calendar. It didn’t happen. So, having run right out of time, on Feb 28 with the temperature at -22 C, I bundled up and headed out with gear in hand. I had hoped with such constant cold that the trees along this creek would be nicely frosted but between bright sun and raging winds of late, most frost had been weathered away. Thankfully, the heavy accumulation of snow softened and brightened the ragged river bed offering nice contrast to the dark turbulent waters. I decided the shot would suffice. I hope you like it. For specific screen resolutions, go to the Free Calendar tab in the menu bar and select March 2014.

March has come in as a lion if -30C with wind chill warning of -40C to -45C is considered fierce! Hopefully, there will be a much warmer looking scene for next month.
