Each month is done in a different hue--forest green, wheat, royal blue, eggplant, deep aqua, and rust compliments the picture above (and I had help with those colors). Many countries and their landscapes are represented from every continent but two--I don't think they play golf in Antarctica or South America, for that matter. But each page takes you to different courses in Canada, China, Fiji, Hawaii, Costa Rica (where the monkeys bite), Ireland, South Africa, New Zealand, Mexico, Denmark, the Dominican Republic, and Australia mate! Miss February, the Fairmont Banff Springs golf course is my favorite. While I may never come any closer to these pictures than the calendar, I will save them nonetheless on that off chance.
The bottom half is the least important part of the calendar and that is the calendar. Those hues I described sit on the top left of the bottom half (got that?) and in white font, offers a description of the scene above and the bonus, smaller scene to the right. The calendar starts on Sunday and is only in English. They reserve two empty boxes in every calendar page to illustrate the previous month and the following one. However, the size of the dark numerals are a paltry 3/16ths of an inch which means the preceding and following months are even smaller. From a distance you can barely make out the date or if it is Saint David's Day or the International Day of Peace. There is a minor variations to the calendars each year that barely rate a mention.
John and Jeannine Henebry are a husband and wife photography team who must regard their job as one continuous honeymoon. Better yet it is if they bring their golf bags with their photography equipment. I don't recommend this for the practical minded who want big numbers but I do for those who care more about golf and the artistic. I gape over the beauty of the top half and get annoyed at the bottom half, a common problem with dual personalities. After all, I am a Gemini--and so am I.
These pictures are Heaven on Earth. The calendar is okay too.
