Most rivers and lakes in AK are beautiful blues and greens,
so pure as many have their origins from glacier runoff.

Oh, mcshellsie, that looks cold...

Love the falcon and goats Copago

More birds on a roof for me, this time taking advantage of the sunshine on the roof of the house across the street from me, on an extremely cold December day.

Ham House is 17th Century and is owned by the National Trust. You can have your wedding there though. It is gorgeous inside, or it WAS, years ago when we used to go out there.Thanks for the memory David!

I think this is a type of protea.

That flower looks surreal, bhs.

Satguru has shared the football grounds so I thought I would share mine. From yesterday's game. Sorry for the quality but it was a cell phone pix.

I love those frost covered stems, and that protea looks almost 3D!
Here's another image from my trip to Warsaw last week, one of the many beautiful buildings in the 'Old Town'.


During World War II, in reprisal against the Warsaw uprising, Adolf Hitler ordered all buildings which had any significance to Polish culture to be demolished. Over 90% of Warsaw was destroyed, including many architecturally important and beautiful buildings. After the war, in spite of suffering millions of deaths and injuries and occupation by Stalinist Russia, the Poles rebuilt their capital city. I can't say just how much I admire this nation!

No problem- that's what photos are for!

Here's a train at the platform at St Margarets station in Twickenham, obviously as it was getting dark (just after 3pm, what a country...).

Ditto, Picqero -- really lovely! And thanks for the Polish compliment -- we rarely get them (except for our jokes...)

I like your shot of the train at twilight SG. Your protea looks almost like an artichoke would bhs, and it is a lovely colour. The building is a stunning shot piquero. Nothing wrong with the quality of your mobile's stadium shot Tredici, i am impressed. Sp. Liz - i have always wondered why they congregate like that. It is nice to see just the "skiff" of snow that you have there.



i find this shot looks better in a larger than 640 pixels - you can see more detail. it is strange how for some pix it doesn't matter as much ...

bhs, it does not look like any of the Proteas I am familiar with. Althought I don't know what type of flower it is, it looks more like a Canna, which is part of the lily family although not a true lily.

My first guess would have been ginger.

Never having heard of a Protea, i 'image' googled all three (protea flower red) . It most closely resembles the Protea images, definitely not Canna lily. Similar to wild ginger though, my that is a gorgeous flower too!
Where's our Bea? She would know!

I think it may be an Etlingera Elatior

SOTHC, the images of Etlingera Elatior certainly look like my picture -- Wax ginger or torch ginger. It just looks so pre-historic!

The last image from my trip to Poland last week.
Warsaw has its modern areas as well as the traditional parts, and here is a small part of the inner roof of the Zlote Tarasy or 'Golden Terraces' shopping mall.


It's a huge mall with a latticework roof, composed of a series of interconnected cupolas, a fascinating piece of architecture!

Harrow Weald bus garage with 140 buses. These once went from near me in Mill Hill to Heathrow Airport but not any more.

Hi all-
bhs63's flower looks like torch ginger to me. Here in Hawaii it is called awapuhi ko'oko'o. I have some in my yard and it looks very similar, with just a slight color variation.

Very nice swan picture, bhs. And I really like the effect of those cumulus clouds behind the soaring birds, Tredici.



An airport taxiway guidance sign that unfortunately spells "BABE". Its on taxiway A (Alpha) with taxiway B (Bravo) running across it and taxiway E (Echo) off to the right. So far there have been no protests from any woman pilots.

(I have to figure out how to take pictures at night.)

Can almost smell that petunia Ren - lovely to see some nice flowers amongst the gloom of a Shropshire winter's day....
