The story I’ll tell you, will almost be a Christmas story, as this picture was taken in December last year. I was walking with a dog from the shelter (That I volunteer at) in the park in Moscow city and the nature wintery scene was like that from a fairy tale. My dog, named Brut, was making his first steps in the big world - no more cages for him - he was still afraid of people, and other dogs and of a new life, in general.

This image was taken near the Chidiya Tapu Beach in Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

This is the view I see daily ! Although 2 miles away from me, the BT tower building really stands out. Most recently the messages displayed were "Good Morning" or during the lockdown "Hands, Face Space".

It really stood out against the fiery sky. Well done BT tower for upholding the tradition of what this particular day means to so many people especially at this troubling time in the face of Covid .
