Sherry, I love your snow scene! Also love the row of cottages and all the street scenes, the nature shots and that amazing maze!

I was in City Hall today paying my property taxes, and this is what you see when you look up whilst standing at the counter.

The QE2 in port at Invergordon Scotland,
on the last tour before she became out of service.

This is near Simonswald in the Black Forest (sorry again!)... was so beautiful- not so sure it would be so amenable during the winter months when it is under a lot of snow.



Loved the cottages in Norfolk, Lily, just goes to show you can have a pretty garden inspite of limited space. City hall looks impressive, as does poor old QE2 - shame she is no more.

Oh dear, you have made me feel very old. I can remember so well when the QE2 was brand new, in fact soon after she started in service I was given a tour of her.

For all those looking forward to holidays, a picture taken in the hills of Corfu looking over towards Albania.

Lovely pictures everyone and thanks for all the very kind comments on my meagre efforts.

The "maze" is so colourful and busy, very good. The view through the glass ceiling is really neat, really abstract. And the QE2, what an amazing girl she is. Awesome capture.

This is the Russian River in the Kenai in Alaska - January 2005. I lived in Alaska (Wasilla-home of the Iditarod) for three years.

The extreme temperature differences between the frozen river and the air
created the beautiful mists on the rocks. The reflected sunset, was just a beautiful bonus.

Beautiful roses, Sue - I don't think I've ever seen one two colors before.

Mcshellsie, your Russian River photo is fantastic. We lived just down the road from Wasilla, in Eagle River, from 1997-1999. But I was too busy having and taking care of babies to take any photos like that one!

Thanks
Djsgal, i loved Eagle River, and will post a couple of photos i know you will like from there. One had incredible rainbow - it was on Eagle River Canyon Road. I would live in Alaska again in a heartbeat if i could.

This is Finchley Road in the centre of Temple Fortune. The car crossed the road just at the wrong moment.



The object in the road is an umbrella in case anyone wondered.

Gee, I get behind on this for a couple days and come back to an entire gallery of amazing photos! I started with sherry's farmers market in Freiburg Münsterplatz and 'traveled through' the rest. Too many to comment on each, but they are all amazing and thanks again to each of you for the enjoyment!

I've been away sailing for the past week, visiting the Channel Islands and France. This is the sunrise over Cherbourg harbour yesterday morning at 06.00 local time when we were leaving.
The fort is part of the breakwater known as 'La Digue', and was commenced during the reign of Louis XVI and completed by Napoleon Bonaparte.

We crossed the Channel on Friday night, and it was a pretty 'lively' crossing. Later on the day of the above photo we crossed again, and fortunately the winds became much fresher. The photo shows a tranquil scene, but pretty useless for sailing. This video clip taken last Thursday in the Solent with our yacht under double reefed main is definitely preferable to the yachtsman

Hmmm agree with you there - used to sail a lot years ago, far too ancient now, confined to gin palaces (shock horror!).

Amazing colours there professer.

This is what passes for housing in Kilburn. The block on the left directly overhangs a busy railway line as well.

Wow David, it looks more like a holiday resort in Spain or the Canaries! Pity about the railway line, though even that must have its appeal to some folk!
Another scene from my sailing trip which ended yesterday. This is the pretty little harbour of Omonville-la-Rogue on the Britanny coast. It's a fairly difficult entrance, and ours is the only yacht in harbour, and is moored to the white buoy at the rear.



There won't be any image posts from me for at least 10 days as we fly to Venice tomorrow, then a cruise down the Italian and Croatian coast
On a luxury liner this time, not a small yacht!

What great photos!!! I love ships and boats of any type picqero so I love you photo of the harbor. Enjoy your trip and take lots of pictures.

I was out in our backyard taking some new shots of our flowers. So be prepared for them in the next few days. This flower's name is unknown to me, so perhaps someone on the site will be able to identify it.



It grows quite tall on a single stalk and the end looks like a pod until it opens and these beautiful bell like flowers emerge. You can't see the leaves as they are hidden by the surround plants.

argus, I believe those are Adenophoras aka Ladybells, but it would be easier to tell if I could see the leaves.
Lovely shot and enjoy your cruise, picqero!

So many more beautiful photos, I'm loving them all. Satguru, I was going to say just what picqero did about those flats looking like something from the south of Spain!

I was over at the local shopping plaza yesterday, and this cheeky gull walked alongside me for a little while. There were several on the sidewalk and parking lot, seeming not to be bothered by either people or cars.
