So, let's get the ball rolling for the Christmas desktop calender. Any theme, wildlife conservation, people, places, Africa, India or elsewhere if you have some stunning wildlife shots from around the world...

Upload a normal size photo, and once the winner is chosen, I'll contact that member for the high res file.

Remember, most likes wins it. Let's be having some great wintry scenes. (Even if that means a barbie on the beach in Aus ;) )

Matt, I may not be able to contribute I'm afraid. Family crisis with my mother so possibly will be 'off line' for a while. Apologies.

Hope everything will be okay, twaffle.

Here's a 'twafflescape" for you - not very "Christmas" but since I created it last night (given the subject matter I had to think of you when I decided to let the sky stay a bit noisy - I usually don't), see this message this morning and it does sort of have spece for a calendar, it seems this is where this picture was fated to be posted!

Edit:
And please remember not to "like" it because you like the sentiment - then I'd be getting the "like twaffle" votes as well..... and nobody else need even bother entering! :lol:

Safaris and Ketchup are similar, sometimes you shake the bottle of Ketchup and nothing comes out, you shake and shake and shake and all of a sudden everything pops out.
So donīt stop shaking the bottle, thereīs a lot inside.

Not sure I like the pinky tone WD, but that is an image that was made to be monochrome.

I don't think we need any other photos, I think the elephant looks very Christmassy and we should reserve paul's image for a wintery day which for us will be in June! :)
