The August 2014 free desktop wallpaper is taken at Sandhamn in the outskirts of the Stockholm archipelago. A few sailboats are passing by the coastline during midday in this high-key image.
From this month and onwards I will no longer put the calendar in the image to create a cleaner look at the photo.
To use the photo as your desktop wallpaper simply click the image above, then right-click (or control-click) and choose “Save image as…” or “Set as desktop background”.
The photo for the August 2013 wallpaper was taken last month in the Stenshuvud National Park in the south-east of Sweden.
Stenshuvud National Park was founded in 1986; its area is 386 hectares (954 acres). The park was established in order to preserve a large natural area of special geological and biological significance, which also provides a valuable setting for outdoor recreation.
The legendary mount of Stenshuvud rises to a height of 97 meters above the sea. The view from its crest is magnificent. To the south, broad heaths and dry meadows bursting with flowers stretch across the level sandflats. Where they meet the sea, the sandflats open into an inviting bathing beach. The coastline to the east is more dramatic, with sharply gouged cliffs and fields of stone rubble; beyond, the blue sea with its open horizon. On clear days, the Danish island of Bornholm can be spotted to the southeast. During summer, the view inland is over the compact roof of a broadleaf forest.
The August 2012 free desktop calendar wallpaper is featuring two of our Shetland ponies, Furunäs Muzette and Furunäs Nicolita.
If you want to read more about our ponies and their history you are welcome to visit the Furunäs Stuteri website.

Getting back to work today after having had a wonderful holiday with some beach time?
Well, here is an opportunity to extend that beach time while being back at work, the August 2011 wallpaper!
Four months ago I let you choose the April 2011 wallpaper among various alternatives. The above photo came up as #2 in that list and so I decided to make it the August 2011 wallpaper. The photo was taken on the Dutch west coast near Schoorl. Hope you enjoy it!
