Hello UWOL family and viewers:

It is becoming a serious tradition in my family to make our own Christmas Card by profiling one of our farm animals.

For this year:

Meet Emily, master head-butter of small children (and adults for that matter!).

I extend to all of you my very best wishes for a season of renewed wonder this Christmas/Hanukah/Holiday Season.

I am deeply honored to know all of you and sincerely appreciate the backing and friendship I've received from Meryem, Kevin and Mat -- the real backbone of this forum.

Here's to a New Year of creative and powerful film making! You each motivate me to reach beyond what I think I can do. Now, what a blessing is that!

These cards are beautiful! Geir, did you take your photo around noon? :) Just kidding friend... nothing like a little ribbing with our friends from up north.

Thanks for sharing your holiday spirit and the same goes back to you.

That was a greeting not only with a lot of heart, but a lot of work!

Happy New Year everyone!

I'm not a Christmasy person but I respect the fact that others believe in it, so if you're one of those, here's wishing you a Merry Christmas, and if you're like me, have a great holiday..... :)

As for the New Year, here's hoping everyone has a rippa.........woo hoo......


Dale Guthormsen December 23rd, 2010 06:11 PM

Merry Christmas to everyone in UWOL-land!

I've been out of the game for a while due to personal and work commitments, but hope to return to UWOL in the New Year. I hope everyone is having a great Christmas, Holiday, or whatever you celebrate! Santa has been good to me, but I need to wait a little longer for my new Vinten tripod to arrive.

By way of a mini Christmas project, I present a little video that just shows the birds in my garden today. Here in the top part of Ireland, we're in the grip of the coldest winter since records began. Temperatures of -18 degrees have been recorded (0 degrees Fahrenheit), and wildlife is suffering. I've been suffering too - cars just don't go, and I've been walking to work with 6 layers of clothes on. Not fun.

I know, Per Johan and Geir Inge and the rest of those handsome Scandinavians are laughing at me!

We always feed the birds, and this year I've pulled out all the stops to try to keep our little friends alive. 12kg sacks of bird seed are being regularly purchased, I've spent a lot of cash on new feeders, and we're out several times a day topping up supplies. (I don't want to re-awaken debates about whether or not to feed birds - this is the way it is on our culture, and always has been).

We've had an unprecedented number of birds in the garden. Ten blackbirds in a garden that normally has just one, and the resident one is spending more time chasing the invaders from his territory than eating food. It is all very worrying, our wildlife just can't cope in these conditions, and lots of birds are simply dying from hunger and thirst.

It's amazing to watch them, and I always wonder how they survive. Some of them can even be seen standing on one leg while they eat, presumably to minimise contact with the ground.

It was quite dark today, and this was shot quickly with my Panasonic FZ100 stills camera (with 800mm lens at times). I wanted to see how this camera fared for wildlife work, as it is compact and easily carried. It did struggle a bit with the exposure, particularly with black-coloured birds on white snow. But anyway, this piece isn't about technical brilliance!

So, I hope you enjoy the little show. Merry Christmas one and all!
