A little bit late—but as they say, better than never—here's the new desktop wallpaper for January 2012. You'll notice a few changes from my previous designs, including the addition of my new logo and a change in the calendar design. I almost left the calendar off this year, but I like having one nearby that I can quickly glance at to find the date, so it's staying for now. I'm also only posting the desktop version of the image. I'd rather you be able to experience the image as I made it, rather than cropping it to fit on an iPad or iPhone. It will, of course, still work on those devices and you can choose how you'd like it cropped if you decide to use it there.
For this month's image, I reached into the Wayback Machine to pluck a scene from my visit to my good friend Jeff Fielding in San Francisco. This was shot during our return trip to San Francisco from our 3-day stay in Yosemite National Park. As we were driving home, I noticed these low-hanging clouds dipping down to touch the tops of the rolling hills around us.The road was pretty narrow here and we had no opportunity to pull over, so I shot a few frames from the car while Jeff drove as slowly as he safely could. Pretty sure we got yelled at a couple times, too.
So, risking life and limb, from me to you, the January 2012 desktop wallpaper. Simply click on the image to download the full 2560 x 1600 px file. Enjoy :-)
