Another image from Selfridges of London, Christmas window display.
Now why does this somehow remind me of David and Victoria Beckham

It's been a few days since I've been able to post a photo. Welcome, DD.

My aunt has these two part wolf/part shephard dogs. The lighter colored one in the background is the female and just had puppies the other night.

Those look like Murex shells Ren, normally used to decorate fishtanks. I think I'd stick to looking at them personally...

This is a view of Hendon Park looking south over Golders Green and beyond.

Wow, I disappear for a few days and there are photos galore! Great shots everyone, and Welcome DD -- as mentioned before, it does get easier. I had a hard time when I first posted photos, too.

The canal locks at Fort Augustus. It was wet enough last weekend for the locks to be spilling water over the top.

Crikey Mugaboo, I was there in 1970 and it looks exactly the same! I was actually walking along that bank and my grandma told me to get away from the edge. That was a good holiday touring half of Scotland.

I spend several hours at Durrell Wildlife Conservation this afternoon, somewhere I shall be spending a fair amount of time in future as my daughter bought me a year's subscription so I can take photos.

On the way home I decided to check out the sunset at Corbiere and it was spectacular. Men were leaping out of their cars with camera phones in their hands trying to capture the scene - the sea had turned red! One man said he was on holiday here for a couple of days and hadn't brought his camera, another said "Now I know why I live here". I tend to take mostly underexposed photos so I can insert light later but this one was ok immediately. Photos cannot do it justice, it was really amazing.



As per request, a link to a larger photo.

That is a spectacular photo Sue. Even though the real thing was probably amazing at least you caught that moment in time, beautiful.

This is a photo I took while on a walking tour of Sydney Harbour during our trip to Australia earlier this year. This monument has three sides,it shows the 3 groups that came to Australia. This one is the Soldier that came with the convicts that were sent from Britain.




This represents the convicts

This represents the settlers

The walking tour was excellent and the Sydney Harbour area was really interesting.

Is that wood, argus9? Are the figures into, or standing out from, the surface?

I love all of the photos. As close as I get to actual travel!

The monument is of stone and the figures are carved into the stone. It was very impressive.

The sun only came out for about a nanosecond today, but when it did, I liked the way it caught the yellow leaves on this tree, and the dappling on the fence.

Sue, that is an incredible sunset photo. You could hang that on your wall, it's so beautiful.

All the photos are great - love the sculpture and the tree, too.

I wish them both all the very best for a safe return.

Contrary to what some people might think, this is not a photograph taken OF me! This is Ya Kwanza, the resident silverback lowland gorilla at Durrell. The wonders of a good telephoto lens, I really wasn't just a couple of feet away. He was eating cucumber and I am not sure if he was overkeen on it.

Gorgeous,gorgeous picture Sue!

Here is another strange, early morning sky. We seem to get them a lot, proabably due to the pollution from China.

Just a little landmark of where I live on the North Circular Road at Golders Green, somewhere I pass (or avoid due to the traffic) a few times a week.

The young couple look happy enough DD, and I join in wishing them a safe return. I still find it inspiring that so many young people are prepared to serve their country for little reward and considerable danger.
Sue, do you have a link to a full size image of that spectacular sunset?
My image for today is the nearby Rye House Gatehouse, built in the mid 15th century as the entrance to a large fortified manor. It achieved notoriety when in 1683 it was the site of the 'Rye House Plot' where the assassination of king Charles II was planned. The plot failed, and the owner, Richard Rumbold and his co-conspirators were either executed or committed suicide!

You can see a larger image here and the detail of the barleytwist chimney here
The brickwork of Rye House gatehouse is the best example of medieval brickwork in Hertfordshire.

On one of our cruises we were taken to their private beach in the Caribbean. This photo is of a rock formation called Dragonhead. The very end of the rock does look like a dragon.




Larger view

I think the larger shot shows it better, does it look like a dragon to anyone else?
