Happy Canada Day! I spent the holiday photographing the Canadian Prairies that surround the small town of Vermilion, Alberta, and decided to share images I captured only yesterday. Typically my monthly desktop wallpapers are selected from my favorite images captured throughout the entire month; however, I chose these images because they truly relate to my view of Canada. It’s shocking because there isn’t a mountain to be seen; however, I always think of Canada as endlessly big rather than mountainous. If nothing else, these images stretch to the distant horizon and truly show what settlement would have looked like as new Canadians slowly migrated west.
It’s hard to believe we’ve arrived at the halfway point of 2016. The months just seem to fly past. Now that we’ve reached the official height of summer, I have an extremely busy few months coming up beginning with a trip to Montana from July 3-7th. I am truly hoping for a spectacular few months and will be sharing plenty of exciting news in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more details soon!
July Desktop Wallpapers from the Canadian Prairies
For the past two months, I have offered two different images – one from my camera and one from my drone – for my monthly desktop series. The download numbers make it obvious that the aerial images are most popular, so for at least this month I’m sticking with just images fro my DJI Phantom 4. These are my favorite shots from the month anyway, as they show the immense beauty of the Canadian Prairies.
