Happy Thanksgiving everyone -- and may your Holiday Season be happy and joyful.

It is hard to believe, but 2021 is rapidly coming to a close -- Thanksgiving -- Christmas -- New Years Day, and then it's 2022. All your 2021 calendars will be defunct-- so, it is time to introduce the 2022 Butte, Montana, Head Frames Calendar. Twelve months of Butte's iconic head frames photos for your office wall. 

Head Frames Wall Calendars are printed on 12" x 18" 130# paper and bound at the top. Each month presents a 8" x 12" portrait, suitable for framing, of a Butte Head Frame. 

To get your calendar, go to, view the 2022 Head Frames images, select and buy all 13 images (cover and 12 months), go to the shop, pick the Head Frames template from the Photo Gifts subarea, and put it in the cart. Calendars cost $35 plus shipping, but two or more ship free.

The Bell Diamond head frame, curved gussets and all, is our 2022 cover as well as June's head frame (different image). The cover image was captured on a snowy evening near sundown when blowing snow blurred the image slightly and whited out the sky.  Cover - 2022 Head FramesCover - 2022 Head FramesThe Bell Diamond The Steward Mine with the Original Mine in the distance is our January 2022 photo. The image was captured in January 2021 (after the 2021 calendars were printed) and gives a hazy, cold feel to the month. Mount Fleecer guards the horizon. Winter high pressure made for a hazy day and evening and added nuance to the light.

The Travona stands silhouetted against a setting sun in this westward view from the middle of West Aluminum Street in Butte. Fortunately, the neighborhood is quiet and there was little traffic to disturb my photography.

The north facing windows of the hoist house are covered with screens, painted to memorialize 'Centerville', the neighborhood surrounding the mine.  November - 2022 Head FramesNovember - 2022 Head FramesThe Mountain Consolidated Mine To see all of the 2022 head frame images go to Then take a moment to grab up your own historic Butte Head Frames 2022 calendar.
