Rotorheads Desktop Calendars (Archive Dec 03 - Dec 05)

A Christmas gift from Rotorheads .....

Here's our first effort at producing a desktop calendar for your PC. Many thanks to Blenderpilot for agreeing to create the calendar - and for not backing out when he discovered my request involved much more work than he (or I) expected.


Heli-skiing in Canada
B212HP on Caribou Peak in the Purcell Mountains west of Golden, BC.
Mount Sir Donald (10,600') is in the background.
[i]Photograph by 407 driver




To set as desktop wallpaper:
Right click on the photograph and select 'Set as Background.'

If members like the idea, we'll keep it going and change the photograph each month.
Please let us know what you think.

It's resplendent upon my laptop screen as I type. Wouldn't 407 have appreciated some credit on-screen for his work? Very magnanimous of him if not.

We tried to include a 'Type, Location and Photographer' line but ran out of time and decided to run with this alpha version now to see whether there's enough demand to justify the work involved in producing it monthly.


So far, the feedback is all positive but there's not much of it given the number of views so it's difficult to make an overall assessment.

Still, it's early days yet.
We'll monitor the posts over the next week or so.

I'm guessing that most people agree the calendar is STELLAR! However, if you don't type more than 15 characters in your response, it won't be allowed to post. Therefore, the simple "cool" or "awesome" statements aren't showing up.

Views vs replies: third view, first reply! Excellent, although the choice of perfect powder snow + venerable 212 is not good for me, with another 7 months to our snow season

Now, how are you going to choose the next month's picture

It's on my desktop. Well done to the team. K:

Good to see you on line - at long last. The prompt at the BHAB Dinner worked then.
You're a well-travelled man. How about putting up some pics for next year? Or in the Rotorheads collection?

Hey Blender and Heliport - If you want to use any of my images feel free to go ahead and use them. Blender has a lot of them on file.

Regards from Muscat, Oman.

Autorotate.

P.S. Will have some great shots of Omani Police 214STs and Royal Flight Pumas to post later today.
