Feel like hands reaching out. Great picture.

Please have a good Friday.

I beg your forgiveness for my cutting and pasting my comment, but there was no way on Earth I would be able to make it around the whole globe to wish everybody a Merry Christmas otherwise.

The magical elves that constitute my staff have demonstrated their lack of respect in either not showing up for work at all, or those that have all seem a little worse for wear (if you catch my drift). All they seem to do is sit around smoking cigarettes that, frankly, smell funny. In addition, they play cards and tell dirty jokes rather than do their jobs! Consequently, the reindeer are all filthy and out of shape.

Despite my best efforts, the couple of chooks, arthritic wallaby and three peculiar wombats that I’ve drafted in just don’t cut it as replacements.

Anyway, all the way down here at the bottom of the world (A.K.A. Tasmania), and from myself, Jen, Henry and Ezra, please have a Merry Christmas/ Winter Solstice/ Summer Solstice/ Hanukkah/ Festivus/ Ashura and a happy New Year!

I hope that all of your holiday photos turn out to be triumphs, your stocking is stuffed full of lots of tasty treats and not coal and that all your pumpkin pies/ prawn cocktails/ currywurst are all as tasty as can be!

I agree with Robert...like fingers reaching to the sky!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas Giacomo!

This could be a magical walkway in a fantasy film. At any moment I'm expecting one of those limbs to move and grab something. :)

Trees in winter really have their own beauty.

Wow that's a dramatic image, but there's something very splendid about bare trees, proud skeletons! I wish yourself and Trillian a very merry Christmas VP, take care.

Many of our trees will be like that VERY soon. Happy Christmas, Trillian and VP!
