    It's January on the International Dateline.


    Welcome to Photo of the Day. The POTD thread was started by iGary in May, 2006 and converted to a monthly thread in November 2007 by Arn. POTD is one of the most popular picture groups on MacRumors, often exceeding 500 posts and 20,000 views per month.

    Photo of the Day is intended to be a showcase for your best pictures. There is no limit to your gear, just your imagination. P&S and film cameras are welcome along with DSLRs. There are no themes like the Weekly Contest, and no winners (or losers) either.


    Policies

    *One Photo per Day - Don't post more than one photo each day.

    *Multi-Quote - To comment on several photos, click the "+ (Multi-Quote) button. This puts all your comments in one post. Multi-Quoting is required on all of the MacRumors forums.

    *SFW (Safe for Work) only - This is a site - wide rule. If you wouldn't show it in a public place, then it's NSFW (not safe for work). Think before you post.

    *Describe your photo - Tell what it is and where you took it. If you know the EXIF data of a photo, include it. The following EXIF fields are recommended: Camera, ISO, Focal Length, Shutter/Aperture and Lens.



    Note: Anyone may start the Photo of the Day thread on the first of the month GMT. Please copy a quote of this post to maintain all the formatting.

    Happy New Year everyone.

    I'll start the year with something dismal - industrial decay. An old 18th century textile mill, once home to the largest waterwheel in the UK mainland. Remained water powered until the 1950s. Comments always appreciated.

    Was fortunate enough to spend the holidays in Panama with my wife's family to celebrate mother-in-law turning 85 this past year. Most of the pictures were of family of course but I did manage to get in some other interesting shots. You all will just have to suffer through a couple of them over the next few days. :)

    I've never been to Panama... but I love Central America. I've been to Guatemala multiple times... and to Belize, Honduras, Nicaragua and El Salvatore several times. Such beautiful scenery, wonderful people and a photographer's dream. No "suffering" here - I'm looking forward to your photos.

    And you Ken. We had a wet, cold day here so played with macro (nifty-fifty plus extension tubes). Comments always appreciated.

    Cracking management of light here - must be one of my favourite shots of yours to date.

    ^^^^ Well, ahem. On a slightly different note. Delayed our Xmas so all the kids had time off from work to get together. Stayed at an Airbnb house in Atlanta. Old, old Victorian. Didn't have a tree but the kids are an inventive bunch.

    A walk at Linlithgow Palace today. Lovely and quiet - because it was shut DOH! so a nice walk around the lake to take some snaps. As always, advice welcomed.
