Beautiful scene and wonderful photo. You folks are an inspiration.

Two years ago I did just that, I made everyone (okay not everyone but just about everyone) a calendar using pix I took while I was with them .. so each calendar was personalized sort of .. and then because I can often be overly controlling, I picked different fonts for each month so the font 'went with' the photo.

A lot of work, but worth it for all the thanks I got.

This year I was going to print a special photo for each and put it in a little frame ... a friend gave me over 100 small photo frames she had left over from something she did ... didnt get to it, but I am thinking if I start now I could have them done for next year ...

Every year I mean to make a personalised family calendar to share, and EVERY year so far the time has gotten away from me.
I should learn, and plan to do it in March this year! LOL

Yours is beautiful, and it's a great idea!

Merisi said...

I would have never guessed that this animal is actually a sheep!
Great picture. :-)

Reader Wil said...

What a great idea! My theme would be the waters around us. The reflections in the water, life in this water, windmills near the water.

Arija said...

Dear Troy, Dear Martha,
it has been a joy to visit your blog and see your wonderful wildlife/travel scenes.
I wish you a Happy Christmas and an adventure filled New Year.

RuneE said...

I once thought of making one based on the previous year's corresponding months. But, you know how it is...

Nowadays the photo labs do it for you, so maybe?

JoAnn's-D-Eyes said...

Good to make a calender but eeh what do you do if you get 10 calenders already as presents?

Merry CHRISTMAS!! , visit my blog:

Great shot and idea!

Dewdrop said...

I'm not happy unless my calendar has a picture of a tornado in it, and since I haven't nabbed one of my own, I am having to buy mine for now. Great idea and suggestion though. Really terrific!

Photo Cache said...

That's really a great idea. I may make one of my faves in 2008.

Beautiful scenery.

vincibene said...

Cool picture!
And a SkyWatch-Calendar is a very good idea for the next year.

Guy D said...

Great idea, I gotta figure out how to go about making a calendar. Thanks for sharing.

Cheers!

Great shot! Nice January theme.

Cicero Sings said...

I keep thinking I should make a calendar ... maybe for next year Christmas presents? We'll see.

imac said...

Nice one, did that 2yrs ago

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Very cool idea! I might have enough time to actually do this project. ;-)

Gaelyn said...

Very nice job. I've often thought of making my own calendar. My theme would be the travels of geogypsy. Instead I send a Christmas newsletter.

Kathy said...

Great pictures and great calendar idea! All the best to you both for the new year.

kbguy said...

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all !!

Luiz Ramos said...

Great shot. Good chance. Beautiful view.
Merry Christmas.

indicaspecies said...

A good idea, but will try it out another time, as I've just returned from leave.

This shot of the lone sheep is superb! Thanks for sharing.

I put up some cool images of a warm desert at:

Nice theme for a calendar. Lovely picture.

George said...

I like the idea of a skywatch calendar. If I get started now maybe I could get one done for 2010!

Robert V. Sobczak said...

Nothing like a good calendar. You don't see them around as much as you once did. Must be another casualty of the digital age.

T and S said...

That's a fabulous composition, stunning given the fact that you captured the habitat with blue skies and the rocky terrain along with the sheep. Awesome.

You might want to checkout my lasted post on chance sighting with a wild Leopard which also has a similar habitat shot in the post...Thomas

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

Well what a great idea! I need more shos so I will plan ahead now for next year.Love yours though.

Pearl Maple said...

Calendars are a great way to remember all the great things we have seen through the year.

Happy Sky Watch Friday & Happy Holidays.

Afanja said...

That's a wonderful start of the new year. Great scene!
What a good idea. Our birthday calender is some years old, so we could use a new one. :-)
Happy X-mas!

Michael Palmer said...

Nice design -

fishing guy said...

Troy: What a neat idea to make the calendar. Thanks for sharing your layout.

Robin said...

Fantastic shot. Breathtaking.

I did make a calendar for the new year. :)

2sweetnsaxy said...

Great photo and calendar. I was going to do family photos this year. Hmmm... maybe I still have time. I'm using family photos.
:-)

dAwN said...

nice calendar...i look forward to my home made calendar every year..

Reluctantfarmchik said...

What a great idea - could have an international skies calendar. Cool gifts too!

storyteller said...

Wonderful idea! I just made a couple of 2009 calendars in my PSE6 class using family photos, but now that you mention it ... Sky Watch would be an excellent 'theme' with easily accessible photos from this year's posts. That said ... Photo Hunt and other photo memes could work too. I always love YOUR photographs and posts ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

evlahos said...

excellent idea

I wish you, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Kathiesbirds said...

Looks great Troy! so, are you selling yours?

Butterflys are up on Sycamore Canyon. Can you ID any of them? They are from Australia.

Merry Christmas to both of you!

Anna said...

Stacey Huston said...

I would love to make my own calendar.. Not sure what theme.. maybe just some of my favorite wildlife shots.. whitetail in Nov. Elk in September, kind of put the photo to the months that the animals are more prominantly photographed... I don't have a great printer like you. so would have to pay to have them done and I think they are WAY to expensive. BUT you post did give me and idea. maybe I could plan a yearly calendar out as a poster.. they aren't bad to have printed... will have to look into that one.. Here is wishing you a wonderful New Year..

CrazyCath said...

I have done this. It is a great idea. Unique and personal calendars.

(My pix are not quite as good as yours though....)
