Poets romanticise about it and The Beatles sang it over and over making it a worldwide hit. So my Christmas message to all of you this day is a world that is free of conflict, pain, hatred, injustice, prejudice, hunger, disease and finally at PEACE. An unrealistic "Santa" wish list I suppose, but we can all live in hope. This image of love is hopefully one that all my friends here on TE can identify with; it was taken at the annual Shoreham Air Show in the county of West Sussex, England. My compliments of the season to all of you who celebrate Christmas and hope you all enjoy the holidays.

this is great!
simple(although I guess not for the pilots:)but very evocative and expressive scene.
Magnificent shot and nice Christmas dedication!

What an original and superb Christmas greeting Brian! I love the sentiment, I love the shot..... and I know that you (amongst many of us here) love the song ;) Top marks for originality and of course for a very fine shot. I add my Christmas wishes to the list you sent to Santa! Warmest wishes to you and yours at this festive time. Rosemary

The image is beautiful and it's also a lovely Christmas card with a heartfelt greeting and message to all people of goodwill on Earth. I think there couldn't be a better message for Christmas than a real honest quest for peace and love throughout the whole world. May you be heard, and may the love shared on that special occasion last the whole year. I wish you a Merry Christmas and a healthy, prosperous New Year.

Very good observation and timing on this photo. I like the way how you caught the 2 planes in the frame just as they completed the love sign. Great postcard and unique way to wish Merry Christmas. Excellent photo
Wish you a Merry Christmas as well.

Tanti auguri anche a te e famiglia.

coudnt agree more.great great shot with amazing timing and effect.do see my album..got a few new ones.
Romano46 (15574) 2013-12-24 10:57
condivido in pieno quello che scrivi nelle tue note.
Mi chiedo quale potrebbe essere il mondo se fosse fatto solo di membri di TE, che convivono e si rispettano al di là della loro religione, del loro sesso, della loro pelle o delle loro convinzioni politiche.
Però - quando questo ambito si allarga - ci si accorge che razzismo, lotte di religione, conflitti e guerre coprono molte parti della terra e che l'egoismo di pochi non è intenzionato ad alleviare la fame di molti.
Sperare che un giorno quale il Natale possa aiutare gli uomini a riflettere è pura utopia. Sappiamo tutti che dopo un giorno di falsa bontà tutto tornerà come prima, con tutti i terribili difetti di questa umanità.
Grazie degli auguri e anche a te l'augurio di un felice e sereno Natale

wow! Stunning photo with a very nice message.
tyro (17250) 2013-12-24 15:28
Your note says it all - at Christmastime or, indeed, any time, those should be the wishes of us all. Perhaps if more of the human race actually believed in peace and not in self-aggrandisement, those wishes might be more easily achieved.
But what a novel photograph to post at Christmastime! It's an excellent one too and very well captured, a decisive moment indeed just as the two aeroplanes crossed at the point of the love-heart.
A Very Happy Christmas to you and yours!

Bon choix de photo pour cette période des Fêtes. Nous avons tous besoin d'amour. Joyeux Noel.

emka (68576) 2013-12-25 23:56
hello brian ,
When I see the titel, I mute at once the beatles song. probably all the people with the same, the world free of the wars and conflicts, so why it seems unrealistic wish for Santa?? amazing shot, this heart must have been really huge, how tiny the planes seems.
have a nice day
grigand (19269) 2013-12-26 3:39
A GREAT picture !!
jhm (131812) 2013-12-26 3:56
I remember the song of the Beatles perfect, a very big hit long time ago.
Two pilots but both artists for make this heart.
Excellent composition, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
delpeoples (50651) 2013-12-26 20:09
What a beautiful photo and a beautiful sentiment you express in your note. Simple, minimalistic yet full of meaning. I couldn't ask for more and return those wishes. I hope your Christmas was full of joy, too much drink and pork products and wish you and your family every happiness in 2014.
Gigidusud (12193) 2013-12-27 14:33
An original Christmas postcard accompanied by a beautiful note full of hope. I like it!
