I was going to add to December but it'll be gone in a few hours so as it's open and it's well into January here I'll kick it off.



One thing about the North Downs is you can squeeze a lot of decent photos out of a small area. It's the height mainly plus the greenery.

As drought starts to bite, as rain seems to stay away, as water restrictions have been around for weeks (earliest start for many many years), I thought I would remind myself what fresh water looks like with this view of the Moselle River in Koblenz, Germany.

A little bit of normal life around here, road works in Dorking. Not being London it's fairly quiet, but the road leading to it certainly wasn't.

More Surrey farmland, it's only about ten or so miles from the centre of London but once it ends it's all countryside outside the built up areas.

Jan 6th - all decorations should be tidied away by no w, it is the law! So the Christmas fairy is being packed back into storage til the next Christmas tree.



Does anyone else here have a fairy on the top of their tree? Or do you prefer stars and angels?

I have a fairy on mine but she is not as pretty as yours Chavs. A bit moth-eaten, in fact. A bit like me.

Many graveyards can be very scenic, this is in Westcott next to Dorking

Motheaten has its own charms. laugh I am moth free but I'm a bit dog-eared. I'm glad you have a fairy and I bet she is lovely. Most people I know seem to have stars or angels but I think trees need a fairy.

One last piece of Christmas - I went to the pantomime last night, a new year tradition, and it was fabulous! Peter Pan (speaking of fairies). I managed to get a surreptitious snapshot of Peter and Wendy flying off to Neverland, which was a beautiful sequence done with a background screen animation of flying over Dublin and off out into Space, all to the song "Somewhere Only We Know" (yes, that Lily Allen John Lewis one) and I admit to getting a tear in my eye. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.

Oops, if this breaks a people rule (I forgot about it) please delete - but these are professional actors off the telly and stuff (Johnny Ward, Amy O'Dwyer), ie public faces, so I hope they are allowed here.

It's a strange country where the power stations are more scenic than most of the houses.



Round the corner in Kenton

Time to keep Howie company with the photographs of birds! Here's a rainbow lorikeet in the tree outside our rented holiday cabin in southern NSW...

Chavs, I am sure you are right and famous people dont count there. How lovely the pantomime must have been.
Thanks all for your entries so far for Jan they are so varied.
