I've been extremely busy of late and been unable to do any photography of any note.
Xmas period is the worst for us: it precedes the end of year financial reporting and the shopping centres are very busy at this time and want everything done at the last second...
Will definitely be giving this one a go: warm should be a nice and easy one for us Southern hemisphere dwellers!:p
Good to hear from you Noons. You've been missed! By all means please post something warm; it's 15 degrees here!

Wow! Awesome image, almost surreal!
Oh My Goodness! That's not just warm, it's hot, hot, hot !

The January/February Monthly Shooting assignment has ended.
Although not many photographers participated, there were some extremely excellent entries! Great thanks to Bertus for his Warm Feelings in Wood, warmtone Pauline, hot,hot, hot Molten Bronze and the risque On the Beach!
Sly offered her Pot of Tea, so comforting on cold days and nsouto gave us Warm Glow, Two Cigars, Off to Work and Golden Sand.
Each image, in its own way, exemplified the theme: Show Me Something Warm.
So to whom can I possibly give the nod as winner? After much soul searching, and looking back and forth, I finally came to the conclusion that Warm Glow, by nsouto deserved the honor, both because of the feeling of warmth from the setting sun, the figure wading in warm water and the sheer beauty of the entire photo which warmed my heart as well.
So congratulations dear Noons, you shall preside over the May-June Assignment.
In the meantime, if memory serves correctly, Bertus will select the topic and judge the March-April session.
Happy shooting everyone!
Thanks heaps, Barbara.
Yeah, love that image too: large part of my youth spent on that beach, watching those sunsets. And that kid is more or less the same age I was back then. He's the son of a very old friend, back from those days. I hope the kid will never forget the place, just like we didn't.
Now, to think of a good one for May-June! That'll be the onset of Winter for us and Summer for you folks. Hmmmmmm........
But meanwhile, we got Bertus to deal with! I love this group!:D
