    About time- it's been up on Flickr for about a century now! :LOL:

    Lovely shot - great colours and tones and I have NEVER seen a windmill like that. Brilliant start to your 3rd year of 365! :clap:

    I really like it - love the way in which the land is obviously being worked (the soil and the 'wavy lines' so obviously man-made) and, among all of this is the windmill also representing industry, but in a slightly different way. I think. Or do I? Sometimes, I just mean to say 'ooh, lovely' and something else comes out instead! :LOL: Seriously, though, I like that composition.

    :D I'm hoping that we get a good crop in there this year, as last years crop was a little boring, I'm hoping for a bit of Oil Seed Rape this year as I think that will make some great photo opportunities :D glad I'm not the only one who doesn't always manage to get my thoughts down in full in the written form (y)

    Thanks Vince, I see we've got a lot of new erm victims drawn into the dungeons, I'm must get round to night and welcome them all mwhahaha

    Thanks Carol, it was always going to be a good day today, what I saw of it that is as spent a large chunk of it in bed having not got in from work till 5:30 :banghead:

    Thanks T, I'll be into your thread in a little bit to see what the first day has brought :D

    Another lovely shot of what seems to be one of your favourite locations Matt. I have seen this windmill cropping up a few times before! And congratulations on the start of a third year, that's a lot of commitment.

    Day 2 - A flower for the pretty lady!!

    I've forgot how many scanky roses that I've brought of street vendors on nights out when I've been ****ed :cautious: but I thought that these two ornaments from the house just worked perfectly for what I wanted :D

    On a side not I've never know a year with so many POTDers of the fairer sex :woot: welcome to all of you to the crazy corner :D

    Day 3 - We're all a little nut's!!

    I think it's clear that in the crazy corner that is the POTD Room in TP Towers that we are all a little but nut, else why would we take on such a massive challenge ;) so for today I present you with a bowl of nuts ;)
