A Noble Christmas

Planet Earth Daily Photo will be resting until January the Second, 2008 (MMVIII). Thanks to all contributors, commentators and visitors over the last seven months. Please send in your global submissions ready for the New Year.
Thanks to Elliott for this seasonal shot. Peace, Rich


"Blenheim Palace was built at the start of the 18th century by John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough; paid for by the nation as a gift to him in return for his brilliant military triumph against the French. His descendent, Winston Churchill was born here in 1874 in a small room just behind this grand entrance. During December the palace is beautifully decorated for Christmas in the 'grand' style. Well worth a visit". Taken by Elliott

Want you thank you for all your visits to my blog through the year and the encouraging words. Also thanks for publishing my pix. I send some more when I get a little more settled after the holidays.

Let me wish you the merriest and more blessed Christmas. Keep up the good work.

I was just cruisin around and I have to admit, I appreciate the context you've created for your photos. Most people just throw the photo up and leave it, but you go the distance. Yay!
