June_2013_MedJune ushers in warmer weather and sunny days, which can only mean one thing—it’s time to hit the beach! As all New Englanders know, there’s perhaps nowhere in the region more idyllic to spend those lazy days than Cape Cod. Children can splash through tidal pools, searching for colonies of starfish along the shoreline as their parents look on from beneath colorful beach umbrellas.

It’s no surprise, then, that we chose this stunning image from Under Cape Cod Waters by award-winning photojournalist Ethan Daniels as the feature image for our June digital desktop calendar! If you want to enjoy breathtaking pictures of the Cape all year round, we recommend picking up a copy (or two!) of this beautiful coffee table book. It makes a great gift, but we’re sure you’ll want to keep one for yourself too!

How to set this image as your Desktop Background

Download this for your desktop screen in resolutions of 1280 x 800 (small)1440 x 900 (medium), or 1920 x 1200 (large), based on the size of your screen.

Right-click (or ctrl-click for some Mac users) on the image, and chose the option that says,“Set as Desktop Background”, “Use as Desktop Picture”, — the exact wording will depend on the browser you use.

If the image does not fit your desktop background neatly, you may have to go to your preference screen (on a Mac: System Preferences > Desktop & Screen Saver > Desktop; on Windows: Control Panel > Display > Desktop) and choose “Fit to screen” as the display mode of your background image.

Voila! You have a beautiful, seasonal desktop calendar to keep you on track all month long!
