We took this shot of King Penguins by a Commonwealth Walkway marker when at Volunteer Point in The Falklands in November. It was a wonderful summers day but felt appropriate for Christmas too. Do click on the image and know that our best wishes are with you too for a Merry Christmas and happy New Year.
