    Since we're heading into December I've chosen "Peace". This is the season for peace and goodwill and so the challenge is to enter a photo of anything that represents peace and tranquility for you. It could be a glass of whisky or a scenic view but it will hopefully convey a feeling of calm! If we have had this one before then please correct me. The challenge lasts for two weeks and will finish on 13th December.

    I'll start, but I reserve the chance to replace. I am on the search for peace in many aspects in the next few days!

    Here is my entry. Gulls on the wing, soaring in the rays of the sun which suddenly broke cover from the clouds.

    I'm thinking it may have to be a 'fresh' one from me. Still, plenty of time....

    Fila was my son-in-law's grandmother. She came to Australia from Croatia to spend the last year's of her life here.
    Fila spoke no English but communicated her love of family very strongly.

    Wasn't completely sure if this qualifies, I think it does.

    Our Maine Coon is getting used to the puppy, but not the Persion. I wish I had their nose to nose photo, but this is what I got after puppy's 6 month in our home. We have a saying "Peace at home, Peace in the world":)

    "Peace on Earth, Goodwill to All."

    An exquisitely made 1/6th scale (~12 in.) Nativity Scene in the Gold Room at the Marble House, Newport RI - I had to use a fast short tele because of the rope off, and the dim lighting.

    And.... the winner is Bill of bilzmale. His image was the epitome of eternal peace and the rosary placed in her hands lent a religious aspect appropriate to the season. Well done :)

    Donlaw's glorious display of Magnolia blossoms was sublime and I can imagine the scent wafting over me!

    The golden light on Pete's gulls gave an ethereal feeling and Kyteflyer's cool blue views of the beach and the birds also summon up that feeling of calm.

    I like the window display in Steve's picture, cool drink and a sun hat just the thing for a restful afternoon :)

    rayvonn's birds somehow made me think of Winston Churchill's famous "V" sign, now the sign for peace ;)

    Luke and Serhan's animals... well I think we always feel good when our animals are happy and these so obviously are. They say that it's beneficial health wise to love and care for your animals and I'll second that!

    Covey, your peace and goodwill nativity display really brings to mind the Christmas story, one that is repeated each year to remind us of what really matters.

    Thank you all for your participation and I will hand over to Bill for the next challenge if I may :)
