Horse and carriage rides on Blackpool sea front. Business is slow because it isn't a very nice day. Even the horse has got a coat on!

Clarasue, I took an almost identical photo yesterday, that is pretty weird. I'll have to add it tomorrow though as I've had my quota!

Tellywellies, how is your fox doing?

Here's the sunset out my computer room window yesterday evening.

I recently went to a function at the University of Western Australia. This is one of the resident peacocks inhabiting the courtyard of the Arts Department. There were a number of peacocks of the usual green and blue variety but none would let me get near them to take a photo, nor would they display their magnificent tail feathers. But this white one was quite placid and let me get very close.

So why are they there?

"In 1975 the landscape architect on campus was a woman called Jean Vershuer and she decided that it might look good if there were peacocks grazing on the lawn in front of Winthrop Hall, not factoring in, I guess, the behaviour of peacocks and the fact that they do like a little more shelter than was afforded over there. Two hens and one male trotted off over here to the Arts building and decided they liked it here and the dean, sort of, canvassed opinions within the faculty and decided they should stay."

Beautiful bird!

The Christmas lights are on downtown! This was taken through the window of a moving bus at about 5 o'clock this evening.

My friend Angela went for a walk in the mountains and turned her ankle over. She took off for Qatar that night, not realising it was broken. This is the contraption she is wearing till it mends.Apparently you can pump air into the sides of the boot for comfort if you need further cushioning. Isn't it natty!Lol!

My final image from last week-end in north Wales, which incidently is only about 5 hours drive from north London! This is the Aber Falls in Snowdonia National Park.

To see and hear these waterfalls, there are a couple of short videos here and here - and make sure your sound is turned on

What else could my photo of the day be other than the pile of cards and presents waiting to be opened this morning.

Happy birthday Sue, we've shared quite a few here now!

Here's the promised tree from Sunnyhill Park in Hendon. It's not a willow but very similar to Clarasue's.



As yours is on another page I wonder if 'someone' (he knows who!) can do a little montage and put two little images of the trees next to each other? Martin- Please?

Both Gatsby and you, BurgGirl, have made me so homesick this week!! I grew up in the midwest, and can't wait to move back there some day. Til then, I'll have to be content with your lovely photos. *sigh*

In the meantime, here's a so NOT midwest-type photo: the Rosamond Dry Lake Bed.



By the way, absolutely fabulous tree shot, satguru - a real beauty!

A tree on the riverbank, still with green leaves in spite of the photo having been taken this morning.

I took this at Lossiemouth this windy morning. That's the river in the foreground, and this gap is where the river exits into the sea.

Here's a shot of the pond behind the next-door neighbor's home. We like to walk over there to feed the fish and I couldn't resist the reflection on the still water.

This is a typical Indian houseware shop which could be anywhere in North London but is actually in Kingsbury. You don't see that many colours in the same place very often.

I've only seen it once since the photo was taken. It is still having trouble with its paw. I bought it some food and have some anti-inflammatory drops to lace it with. If the fox won't hang about though, I suppose there's little I can do.

A woodland autumn scene taken while out cycling today.

The more delicate plants in my garden are suffering now, but some of the geraniums are still quite bright.

Thank you for the update, TW.

Yesterday I posted the Rosamond Dry Lake Bed. Today here is another photo of it, this time with a rain gauge. The gauge goes to 4 feet. I've heard that the bed can fill up and cover the road in times of heavy rain, though I've never seen it do that. Aircraft from Edwards AFB are allowed to land on any of several lake beds in the area, in case of emergency. The surface is almost like concrete, until it rains.
