The Christmas Holes by DrewHopper The Christmas Holes by DrewHopper
This can be my Christmas photo for 09. This swimming hole, in the Gleniffer valley is actually called 'The Christmas Holes', not quite sure why they are called that but I'm guessing it's because Summer is the time to visit. Refreshing water straight from the mountain. These rocks line the river for kilometers, I really liked the contrast between the rocks and the rainbow in this one.

I think just looking at this makes me feel one of two things. 1) this makes me really happy just looking at it. 2) super jealous that you get to have Christmas in the summer...

Lovely shot :D
