January 2012 Calendar Wallpaper - D'ni Library


The January 2012 calendar image is of the D'ni library., Every January I wax a bit nostalgic. 2012 marks the beginning of the fourth year since I started making calendar wallpapers of MYST/URU ages.

The library represents a place of learning to me, a place where one can read and better themselves. At the top of the stairs in this image is light, a symbol of knowledge and enlightenment. All fitting for the beginning of a new year.

May we all learn and better ourselves as we start anew this upcoming year.

December 2011 Calendar Wallpaper - Tahgira


The December 2011 calendar image is of the icey age of Tahgira. I wanted to use an age that had snow in it and I have used images of Eder Delin twice within the past few years. I did manage to get a shot of Rime but it was a little more granular looking than I would have liked. That was simply due to the graphics in the original game. By process of elimination that left Tahgira, which I am glad I used. It is from MYST V END OF AGES and I have never used Tahgira in any previous calendar wallpapers. I hope you enjoy it.

My best to each of you this Holiday Season. May you enjoy that special feeling that seems to permeate throughout the month this time of year.

November 2011 Calendar Wallpaper - Teledahn


The November 2011 calendar image is a view of Teledahn. I really like the color contrast in this image. The browns seem to give it a warmth that is accentuated by the blue portion of sky and its reflection in the water.

October 2011 Calendar Wallpaper - Rebel Hive


The October 2011 calendar image is of the rebel hive in Riven. It is the first calendar wallpaper I've made from the Riven series. I have no doubt that all of you die hard fans have noticed something is different with it as well. Since the original image I used was a bitmap, the sky was a bit too grainy for my liking so I extracted it and placed the hive under an almost clear, starry sky. I think it added to the, ahem, "Mystique" of the image and I find it even more fitting in this iteration for the month of October and the Halloween holiday.

Enjoy the coming autumn season. Eder Delin will be getting snow soon...

September 2011 Calendar Wallpaper - Channelwood


The September 2011 calendar image is of the Channelwood Age from MYST. It is the first wallpaper I've made from any of the MYST Ages. I chose it in honor of the 18th anniversary of the release MYST as it was released for the MAC in September of 1993.

I enjoy the serenity of the photo as well and hope you like it as we enjoy the last month of summer.

NOTE: The initial wallpaper I posted accidentally had 31 days. I have re-posted with the correction.

August has arrived and what better image to use than Tomahna during the daytime? Who wouldn't want to jump into that big blue pool of water for a swim right about now?

The image is from MYST IV: Revelation and it is the first wallpaper I've made from that series. I hope you enjoy it.

July 2011 Calendar Wallpaper - Caldera


For the Northern Hemisphere it is summertime and in Utah, where I reside, it has been HOT recently. What better captures that sentiment than a bright sky shining over a caldera? The Moitey dagger just kinds of adds the explanation point to it all :-).

The image was taken from MYST V: End of Ages and is natively in 1600x900 format. To change the dimensions you may visit to change it. I hope you're all enjoying your summer.
