Free desktop calendar for March 2011

Well, this was a difficult one. Why? Well because March in Estonia is still winter but everybody is so sick of it and wants to see the flowers and green grass already. But the flowers will start to come in April and not before :( Okay... there are spring snowflakes that come out in March but for some reason I couldn't find any pics of them :S Must fix this problem this year! :P So as I was looking through my pics from previous years I discovered this photo of tulips that I had taken and that was bright and colourful and just lovely for a March calendar. Oh and different too from what I've previously posted. Repeat after me: different is good! ;)

This photo was taken by using the technique "painting with light". It simply means that during the long exposure I used different coloured torches to illuminate both the flowers and make the spiral light you see on the right side.

I would greatly appreciate if you could share this free desktop calendar with your friends and maybe give me a small donation too (I will smile even if it's only $1 :))! Thank you!

I've made 2 sizes that are most popular!

Size: normal (1600 x 1200 px) 4:3

Size: wide (1920 x 1080 px) 16:9

You can download this wallpaper for free. You can also do some good and donate either $1 or $5 to help me keep these pictures coming. It's not much but it's your choice! Thank you! :)

Here's how you get this image to your desktop:
1. click on the image to enlarge
2. right click on the enlarged image and choose “Save Image As”
3. Browse your computer and choose a location to save image.
4. Click “Save”
To install the desktop calendar
once it has been downloaded to your computer,
locate the image(wherever you saved it)
Right click on the photo
“Set as desktop background”.


P.S. Comments are loved! :)

Glorious light - Part 1

Last Friday I saw the most amazing sunset, the sun was HUGE and everything was orange-pink. I guess the sun seemed so big because of the cold but I don't know exactly what was the cause of it. So on Sunday I went to photograph swans and that magnificent sunset by the sea...which is obviously frozen. To stay warm the swans, I guess about 200-300 of them, keep swimming in one small area to leave the water open. People come to see and photograph them and leave them some food.

Thankfully most of the people now know that it isn't good to feed them white bread and they had scattered some sort of wheat products over the ice. The swans loved it.

The light was really glorious and I was just happy snapping away pics (took 422 pics total in that one hour :P). Don't worry, I made a strict cut and you will only see 47 of them ;) Will post the rest of them tomorrow as it would be too much for one post LOL

Saw this swan at the very last minute so I wasn't able to catch decent shots.

The water droplets looked especially good in this light :)

Frozen :S It was around -20C that day

More pics tomorrow with even better light so be sure to subscribe to my blog if you don't want to miss them. Just reminding you of the new option that I have on top of the page and on the right side now, it's Subscribe by email.

Thanks for watching! :)
