Nice one Bob, Love the reflection in the water. Gordon a christmas without the bitter cold, wind and rain of England just isn't right :D. I get my D40 on christmas day so expect to see one from me 26th of December :P

Thanks Bob!

Hi Joe, I actually miss the bitter cold, wind and rain of a Uk Christmas! But then we get our fair share of that around July here!

Looking forward to seeing your submission on Boxing day!

Gordon

Nice shots DrazenGal and China Mark! It's nice to see what the season means in different places around the world...

We are nearing the end of December’s assignment. I have enjoyed these assignments and hope they continue for a long time. Also, I am hoping that more people join in. Personally, I enjoy viewing casual entries as much as serious ones – they all have something unique to say. I thought I would offer my offer my impressions on what we have so far – I hope everybody does.

Bob: Nice reflections from a beautiful tree.

Gordon: That’s how warm I want to feel right now. Nice macro and good holiday colors.

Drazen Gal: Beautiful cool firewords. The lingering smokes adds a nice mystique.

ChinaMark: This is a very creative shot. You have brought two cultural traditions together in a unique and wonderful way.

Good shot Brian… oh that’s me :lol:

Jay: I don’t have a mantel in my apartment, but this was a fond reminder to the years when I did. “Ho ho ho.”

Gregory.Rotter: Nice capture of the evening lights. This has a surreal feeling to me, the lone ride at night in the street.

Jim Hawksworth: I think most of us share childhood memories of snow domes. I suspect this shot was harder than you let on, shooting movement in liquid with ambient light.

Happy holidays everyone! :D

Hans: That is a beautiful frosty white tree - brrr. However, your pix didn't show up in the forum :?: so I had to download it to view it.

Brian, thank you, I noticed.
I couldn't get it right with Picasaweb, so I put a copy at Flickr

This is so cool to see such a variety of pics!
Christmas lights of all kinds, Christmas colors and displays, and even a Terracotta Warrior!! (that's a great shot).
I also really like looking at the cold of that white tree against perfect blue and then scrolling down and seeing the beautiful warmth of candlelight reflected in bulbs, sweet! You all are really great photographers!
Gordon: That has got to be really different than the UK! Maybe it feels more like Christmas in July? Santa on a surfboard!?! woohoo! Good read about the tree too.
Brian: I know what you mean about Christmas displays in California. Some of the houses around here are completely covered with lights...just like in that movie Christmas Vacation.

It would be great if the number of entries would increase with each new assignment.
