New Years Day photos from around the world - 2011!
This is now the third year I've run the New Year's Day Around The World page. I hope you've enjoyed the last two years and maybe you have something to share this year.
So what's it all about? Well, the task is to take a photo of where you are on New Year's Day and post it here. As the hours (and days) pass we build up a snapshot of New Year around the world.
All different photos, all the same day!
It's easy to submit your photo, just use the form below
So, here's your opportunity to share your New Year with the World.
The photo could be of almost anything - natural scenery, buildings, decorations, food, people . . . anything you like!
Just as long as it was taken on New Year's Day 2011.
Give it a few days, and hopefully we'll have a really good selection!
And by the way, you might be interested to see some of the photos submitted during previous years. Click here to see the New Year's Day 2009 photos and here are the New Year's Day 2010 photos.

Who are the frustrated
digital SLR owners?
"Taking photos has been my passion for decades.
I used to own a film SLR and loved the quality photos from it - better than anything a compact could produce.
And then I went digital (after saving up enough!).
The benefits of digital photography with the quality of a SLR - I was taking amazing pictures!
But other SLR owners I talked to were disappointed.
I soon found out the reason why - they'd bought a digital SLR because they wanted the quality, but never learned how to use it.
They were hopelessly bashing buttons trying to get great shots.
I realised they can't be alone and so I set about helping them.
The result? After a year's work I finished "The Digital SLR Guide"...
