With only 90 days until Christmas and another month drawing to a close, it's time for another desktop wallpaper. Made some years ago near Dunham in Cheshire, this photograph is also available to purchase as a fine art print in my Cheshire gallery here, but I'm also giving away digital versions to you free to use on your computer's desktop.
Links to download the wallpaper are just below.
As usual, I'm running a little competition running revolving around this photograph, but to be eligible and party to the competition details you need to be in my "Image of the Month" club. Sign up here - you've got to be in it to win it! Don't worry, I don't spam and will never ever pass your details on to anyone else.
Before I sign off for another week, I thought I'd include a few of the better links that I've found worth sharing on the social networks over the last month. If you're on Twitter then feel free to follow me - I'm @NeilAlexanderD or on Facebook at facebook.com/NeilAlexanderPhotography
