Not many entries this time unfortunately, but the voting was fairly conclusive, so well done. :thumbleft:

Now it's your choice as to what the next theme is, Bertie. Please PM me with your proposal by the end of the month ( and I'll nag you if you don't! :twisted: :lol: )

I'm afraid that I have to declare myself the winner of the Dec 2023 Gallery with my picture of A Rural Backwater. Thank you to all who entered and also thank you to all who voted subsequently.
I'll put my thinking cap on and announce the next theme asap.

I voted for yours Rik, wonderful photo, :thumbright: but Philip's moss wins every time...
It was a very tough choice.

I agree with all comments. A well deserved winner, that's a photo that could go on a calendar and be proud of it to be seen by hundreds of people.

I would buy the calendar if it was on it. :thumbright:

It would be difficult for us to distribute calendars to forum members but there's no reason why you couldn't download the photos and make your own. There are dozens of websites which offer calendar making services for quite reasonable prices. I've used BonusPrint a few times to create calendars and bespoke photo albums for friends and family members and can attest to their quality and reliability of service. However, there are plenty of equally good alternatives.

The winner of the March 2024 Gallery is Lonsdaler with " My Stock with Not My Stock".
It's been an interesting one this time and the variety of entries has been amazing, so thanks to all who entered.

So, well done Phil. Please may I have your proposal for the next Gallery subject in the next 10 days or so?

Thanks Philip. I've never won anything before. I'd better go and get a lottery ticket :lol:

Wow.... that was a close one!... Many thanks to all who voted for me and I also send commiserations to Aaron for trailing by just one vote. That is a wonderful structure Aaron and I would not have been disappointed to lose to you for that entry.
I will now try to think of a suitable subject for the next one.
