Monday's magic moment: a time for family and friends
For me, Christmas means migrating back to my parents for a few days, where I'll also bump into my sisters and have a gool ol' catch up. I hope that wherever you are, you have a fun and festive couple of days with your friends and family. As my last Monday Moment of 2012, I leave you with...

Monday magic moment: frost in close-up
Some of you further north may have already had a touch of frost this year, but as I went to my car yesterday evening and was forced to get the rough side of my squeegee out to remove the ice, it definitely felt like winter for the first time. This macro image of frost shows us the crystallisation...

Monday's magic moment: murmurs of winter?
Good morning! Bit nippy this weekend wasn't it? Looks like we're winter is catching up with us. So, for today's Monday's magic moment I thought I'd pick one of the true spectacles of this time of year: a starling murmuration. This image is taken in Wiltshire, and, I think, is...

Monday's magic moment: enjoy the show
With many of us getting ready to let out our best 'oohs' and 'ahhs' at a firework's display tonight, let's not forget that nature can put on a pretty spectacular display, too: Now I've never seen the Northern Lights, but by all accounts it's a mesmerizing experience...
