What a fantastic beach Nancy; judging by the size of the distant cars and people it must be like that for many miles.





Yes! it wasn't vacation time yet so the beach was pretty desolate (that's the way I like it) and the photo was taken from a very high dune. That day was so sunny we stayed at the beach til 9pm!
As soon as i get more photos (i have to find them!) I'll be posting so that those of you who don't know much about Argentina can enjoy our beautiful landscapes.
The photos here are awesome, i enjoy this thread a lot!

You need to look closely, but there is a snowflake above the beak of this tiny titmouse. He was sitting still on the gate long enough to get a shot, albeit not the clearest, but the best I could get. For some reason, I could not get the picture up to a larger size via Photobucket.

Good job on the Santa cactus, PDAZ. You missed your calling.

Not me! The most I would do is stick a wreath on it...

Nice pic, Copago! Our starlings aren't that cute.

ooops! yeah, quite uncomfortable i'd say Copago! I love birds, jordandog's pic is lovely too! Here's a nice landscape from one of argentina's most beautiful provinces: Mendoza. I took it a couple of months ago, i wish i were there right now!! (all of you will get to know my homeland little by little!)

Sorry I'm late in welcoming you to the photo forum, Nancy! Looking forward to seeing some more of your lovely country.

Beautiful float plane, mc_shellsie.

And to the cute titmouse and starling I'll add my female Anna's hummingbird.

Oh wouldnt it be lovely to have hummingbirds in our gardens over here: love all the birdies, but think the Australian starling my actually be a swallow?

Again , super photo Shellie.... Chuck is a little happier now - had his share of the turkey judging by the fat tum!

Shellsie, your photographs are outstanding!

I love the Snow ones, animal ones and floral ones! Infact all photos posted are wonderful.

Nancy, you have a beautiful country!

Sherry, let's hope Chuck enjoys New year more.....he does look happier after his Turkey dinner!

A bit of Old England for a change, this is Dorking High Street in Surrey.

Beautiful pictures guys! and satguru, I'd die to be there, I've been studying English since I was 6 so you can imagine I really hope I'll be able to visit that country some day (when it stops being one of the most expensive in the world! )
Here's a lighthouse from the same beach I recently posted here (though it wasn't taken on the same sunny day, as you can see. Looks ominous, doesn't it?)

oops, right you are, Shelley!

Windy day here yesterday so we went and flew a kite that has been sitting on top of the cupboard for years. Great fun.

That beautiful cake looks far too good to eat! It must have taken ages to make.

So many lovely pics recently.....

I would love a better camera, but for now making do, so here is my hazy shot this afternoon on the beach at Old Hunstanton, famous for its striped chalk and carrstone (sandstone) cliffs. Unfortunately, they are eroding quite rapidly and are dangerous to climb, although the colonies of fulmars seem happy enough.

That looks like a painting, Lily! Beautiful.

Here is a river goanna that ran across in front of us the other and then ran up a tree. I think technically they're called a lace monitor and this one was about 5ft long including it's tail which is about half of it.

I'll match your goanna, Copago, and raise you an iguana. This little guy was at the harbor on St Thomas, USVI.



Ok, who has a Komodo Dragon?

Thanks Nancy, Surrey has the most tourist type villages, and has prices to reflect it as you say!
Here's some more old England, these signs even predate the blue and yellow ones we had before 1963. In fact many of the earlier ones were the same as we have now except with capital letters, so things don't always change as much as they seem. But all the old signs had raised letters and could be painted when they wore, modern ones are flat and are replaced when they wear out so a false economy as many like this are over 100 years old and were made for people on horses.

I like the reptiles! Love the old signs, satguru and really enjoying your shots of Argentina, Nancy!

This is just the late afternoon sun reflected off the windows of an apartment building, as seen through a fence and the branches of an evergreen tree.

What an interesting picture, liz. Clever to have the branches and needles against the diamonds of the fence.
Beautiful sunset, bhs.



I'd like to say this is my private jet but that would be a lie. Mine is in for maintenance. The biffy is full.
