On the 9th Day of Christmas…

The competition gave to me …

a Temple to Saturn,

           Christmas jumpers in the lab, a snowy Silbury Hill, two ‘geofizzing’ students, a  snow covered Castle Hill, a  sweeping  digger  in  the snow,  a  frosty  Grimspound,   a  Lewis  chess  piece,  and  a  snow capped Avebury.


Massimo Brando submitted this excellent image of the snow frosted Temple of Saturn in Rome.
