December ..


For we poor souls in the Northern hemisphere it is the onset of the winter season, with its freezing fogs and chilly winds. The animals and birds are struggling for survival, gratefully accepting titbits put out on patios and bird tables. Snow is a definite possibility, presenting new challenges to the photographer. Desperate shoppers, wrapped up in their winter woollies, are scrabbling around . Homes are snug and warm despite the cold outside. Clear skies and low sun makes for some remarkable sunrise and sunset shots, if we have the determination to get out there and find them.


For our members down at the other end of the world it is the summer season, with its brilliant sunshine and heat waves, and the odd drought or two. T-Shirts and shorts are the order of the day. Brilliant flora and fauna are everywhere. Barbies and "tinnies" on the beach are a must , and a suntan and that "Catch Of A Lifetime" are on the cards.


Throughout the world December means Christmas for us all … With its fairy lights and tinsel and Christmas trees and the excitement and anticipation on the children's faces .


And, who knows, perhaps our friends "Down Under" may just send us a picture of a bikini-clad Santa handing out the presents ? :lol::P




Happy Snapping everyone !! :camera::camera:

If you're being chased by a police dog, try not to go through a tunnel, then on to a little seesaw, then jump through a hoop of fire. They're trained for that.
