Welcome to the December photo thread. The November thread will be left open for a while to allow for World time zones. It will close it once it is December 1st for everyone. Post in either thread (but not both) until then.

If anyone needs information on how to post photos, it can be found in the 'Photo posting guide' located at the top of the forum.

I bet that Christmas display is just gorgeous lit up Gary. and "other Gary" i see the lights are already up and about around you. Hard to believe Christmas is almost here. Ren, your opera shots were all a real treat - so bright and colourful. Really enjoyed the November thread and just wish there was more time to comment on all the fine photos. Can't wait to see what is coming up for December !

An image from our trip to nearby Thaxted yesterday, this is the 14th century Guildhall
Though mentioned in the Norman Domesday Book of 1086 as Tachesteda, 'a place where thatch was cut', Thaxted later became an important centre for cutlery manufacture. It was the Guild of Cutlers who built the Guildhall, which is still in use today!


Incidently Gustav Holst, composer of the well known Planet Suite, lived in Thaxted

Shelley Edinburgh this time of year is fabulous with the Winter Wonderland festival and the other Christmas events the city has, only 26 days and i will e back there again. The hog roast smelled wonderful in the air and the meat was so succulent, the smell of chestnuts cooking too and the mead.

The ferris wheel was busy as was the carosuel and the food stalls, the german stalls were also very busy with a variety of goods on offer

Great photos, all - I love the seal shot, mcshellsie!

I'm delinquent in posting photos lately, but I did get a shot of the rare grouping of Venus, Jupiter, and the crescent moon last night. Jupiter is the higher, dimmer light.

Frosted fingers in Northumberland. It was 4 below yesterday afternoon, but the setting sun made everything at least appear to have a warm glow. Taken at the bottom of the garden, the pond was beginning to freeze over.

An old bulldozer from the '40s. The original one was requisitioned for the war and this one was bought to replace it.

Welcome Blithe, and what a great start to December, everyone.

More geese - these taking off from the nature reserve for the mud flats.

Love the bulldozer Copago. I'll bet its out of warranty by now.
Nice geese pictures, Tredici and lilyalli. The sky and clouds in both pictures really add some punch to the photos.



Here are the Falls of the Big Sioux River today. Its been...how shall I say...a little frosty.

Cool river pic! I've never seen that around here ;-)

But all those geese -- they're headed here! I hear honking every day, and not because of my driving...

"I hear honking every day, and not because of my driving... " LOL

Great geese photos and the pond and river ones too. Guess you're all got your winter wollies ready?? Oh did I mention it was the first day of summer yesterday here ...

Great start to the month for photos.

... beautiful Canada geese, i always look up when i hear them, their cry never ceases to stir my heart. Growing up on the prairies, they were so dear to us. My those waterfalls look wonderful and cold! Gary, you make me positively "homesick" to be in Scotland again, particularly Edinburgh as you describe it this time of year - i hope you have a wonderful trip (and lots of photos please ! )

DJ's gal - i had been admiring those bright orbs in the sky all week, what a wonderful capture of them!! Piquero, somehow that building looks topheavy, lol - it is a fine structure. Very lovely and old sights Satguru. If you hadn't explained the locale, it looks Roman to me, . Beautiful.

This is the view from Roundwood Park in Willesden, Wembley Stadium is on the left and Mill Hill is on the horizon. Where I live is also straight ahead as well.

Love the swan and the galah! Beautiful snowy pic, and I agree about the yellow van!

Spotted this wee fellow as I was walking today. The tree was in a yard that was lower than the sidewalk (pavement) so he was on a level with me as I walked by. Looks like he has a nut in his mouth, I think, getting the winter stocks in.
