Howdy cowboys! Welcome to November. This is about the usual time of posting a desktop calendar background these days—a week or so late. Who knows when these things come out! Thanks for being here and going with another desktop background.

This photo is from Cape Elizabeth in Maine. That there is a seagull! Click any of the following links to download the image for your desktop:

Yes! September is here! You got it! Probably the best month of the year, and a few days late I’m happy to present a new desktop background image for your computer:

This photo is from Highway 12, just North of Elmore Vermont. The road hugs the side of Mount Elmore, and off to the side you can often see an ocean of fog in the lowlands. On this morning it crept all the way up to the highway.

This is a digital coloring of a pen-and-ink drawing I made here in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. Pictured is a farm off of Highway 14 near Craftsbury.

July 2016 Desktop Calendar Background

July 2016 1680x1050

Howdy folks and welcome to July! Here’s a chilled-out easy-going summertime background for your computer’s desktop. Photo is of Lake Caspian at sunset here in Greensboro, Vermont. Imagine the sound of water gently lapping underneath a dock. Then think about how weird the word “lapping” is. Then go back to just thinking about chill lakeside vibes.

June 2016 Desktop Calendar Background

June 2016 1440x900

Welcome to June!  I’m in Vermont and it’s green like I ain’t never seen.  I spent the past few days painting in a field overlooking some hills here in the Northeast Kingdom.  In a bold and brilliant cross-promotional gambit, I have converted the resulting oil painting into a new background for June!

May 2016 Desktop Calendar Background

Howdy folks! Happy May! It doesn’t look much like spring out here in Vermont (read: it’s freezing cold for this Californian), but there are some very beautiful churches. Here’s a new background for your desktop:

April 2016 Desktop Calendar Background

April 2016 Desktop Calendar Background by Gabriel Roberts

Hello my dear friends and Happy April! Just because “April” is capitalized, does that mean I have to capitalize “happy” as well? I didn’t just then. This perhaps shows that I’m a bit reluctant to capitalize the word unnecessarily.

In any case, welcome to a new month and a new image to look at when you first turn on your computer, or when you’re aimlessly tooling the landscape of your desktop. I spent a heavily-caffeinated hour and a half this morning organizing my desktop and BOY did it feel good. So many duplicate photos deleted, so many little files ushered into their proper little folders. Happily they went, joyfully taking up position in alphabetical order, relieved to no longer be floating aimlessly in constant fear of never being found.

The image above comes from Copacabana, Bolivia. Although less famous than Copacabana, Brazil, it is still very much called Copacabana, and it lies on the sunny shores of Lake Titicaca. I had the great pleasure of being a tourist in this beautiful place. I took this photo from the ferry, looking back at Copacabana harbor, en route to La Isla del Sol.

Wishing you a wonderful 30 days of April!

March 2016 Desktop Calendar Background

Better late than never? February was a short month, you see. The end of the month really snuck up on me. Apparently “snuck” is not a word. But I shan’t use “sneaked”! Here’s a new desktop calendar background for your computer screen:

This is a street in Cochabamba, Bolivia. I did a bit of Photoshop painting to clear away some of the web of power lines, and clean up some of the walls.
