One shot from a trip to Lincoln, on the way home the evening sky started to look nice, was a bit of a touch and go to get to anywhere I could park up with a reasonable foregound
Had a trip to St Donats for the Christmas Craft Fair, Yoke and Eleanor were underwhelmed by it, not a lot of craft but a fair amount of mass produced tat by all accounts – I wandered of with my camera, thin pickings really but got this fungi shot

I have been working out of London a couple of days a week recently, finally took the camera in and took a couple of shots from Vauxhall Bridge, the first, looking left from Vauxhall side is Battersea Power Station – defunct and being turned into an apartment block – they are keeping the chimneys but taking down the brick and concrete ones and replacing them with steel frame and clad ones that will look exactly the same – the 2nd looking right is the London Eye

We went down to Cornwall to pick up Verity for Christmas and to deliver her birthday present, finally. We decided to call into RHS Rosemoor on the way home, they were having a bit of a Christmas food fair and there was also a statue collection on exhibition around the gardens, a theme in evidence was Alice in Wonderland.
Had to take a woodland scene as the deciduous autumn colours are a great mix with the ferns and the darkenss of the pines
And where there is woodland - what would it be without Fungi !

Final is a fountain that was in strong evening sun. I liked the way the water was reflecting the light so metered for that but held enought back to get detail in thefountain structure itself, then a little post processing to balance it.
Saturday 13th we found the day to be bright and clear, cold, but hey its December So we went to Cosmeston to take in the air and take a few photos. The squirrels are getting very fat ready for winter!

May I wish you all a peaceful and happy holiday season and religious festival of choice.
