    There’s lots I like about this photo – the memories it evokes of travelling around the beautiful Bay of Islands in New Zealand, the composition, the colours, the boat in the distance, but what I also like is that this is how it came out of camera – one of those rare shots that doesn’t really need working. Sure, the greens could be made more vibrant, and the sky more dramatic, but I’ve left it as is, as it really was this beautiful. Hope you like it too!

    On my way home from the farmer’s market yesterday I decided to stop by to check out the Christmas event at a local park. While I was wandering around I managed to snap this shot of a little girl musing over a reindeer decoration and gently petting it as though it were a real animal. Her mom couldn’t nudge her away from it until she heard her favorite song being played by the live band.

    You might need to clarify the theme a bit as in some parts of the world “Holiday” means Christmas/New Year and in other parts it means “Vacation”…

    The yearly holiday program at Cincinnati Museum Center has a visit from Santa but it seems we were too early as he wasn’t there, so my wife sat in his chair and asked what I wanted for Christmas.

    i have recently returned from 4 months holidaying around the uk and whilst in Scotland was very eager to get a picture of a highland cow and whilst searching high and low i had no luck, but on the very last day of out trip i drove past a breeding colony on these beautiful animals and was able to grab a picture of this fine fellow here. P.s he was super friendly and even allowed me a few cuddles.

    Night shot of the American Falls at Niagara. I shot this back in 2007 while just new to photography on a small Fuji camera. With most of my shots coming out blurry, with no remote trigger and no tripod, I rested the camera on a wall and felt lucky to capture this shot.

    I took this photo when i was in holyday in some montains between Espain and France. It was a piece of wood vertically stacionated with this small stones on the top, making all the entire thing in equilibrium. I loved the place, the depth of field and those colours that are so strong in fall. I hope you like it too!!

    For me .. Holiday is simple symbolizes the freedom and the simplicity.
    we can see here a Two Teenage girls that show us, in fact, even at the smallest and most simply, it is possible to enjoy.
    have a happy and simply holiday!
