For those for whom the New Year has begun already...

Happy New Year! May all our photos turn out better than we hoped and a lot better than we expected. smile

The last night of Chanukah. The nude model is one of three I made in a year in my sculpture class in 1978.

You need a lot of training and proper equipment to get shots like that.

Lovely photos to start the New Year.

I'm still having trouble uploading anything to Photobucket, but I'll work it out sometime (I hope)

Ralph, the Siberian husky - rather glad he's too old these days for sleigh duties, especially as Father Christmas seemed to have put on weight. wink

This is Vladimir, a magnificent Amur (Siberian) Tiger resident at Dartmoor Zoological Park in the village of Sparkwell just outside the city of Plymouth... He is a monster of a cat!

Catching moving items in the dark without motion blur takes some doing, if the exposure's too fast it's not bright enough and more than about 1/250 second it'll blur. But you could be lucky!

These new houses were built near me recently, and really makes a change for a modern design nowadays. There's a row of them at the back as well.

Lovely bird pics. I've never seen a Turaco but that robin's cousin is in my garden warbling every morning. Well, I say warbling - a translation service told me it was nagging "where's my dinner?!" but it sounds good all the same.

This is 'Chincha' the Jaguar (Panthera onca) another resident of the tiny, but very interesting, Dartmoor Zoo.

He's a little larger than yours MG! (Although a lot harder to cuddle).

He looks like one of Victor's relatives, except Victor has stripes.
