For my Christmas present I’d like a new image to replace Ascent as my desktop.

This does seem like to good an opportunity to miss, and I like a challenge.
So, what do people think?
“Soothing to the eye and not too garish” is the key. That would make me think of landscapes or water or something quite abstract. I guess the danger with a landscape is making it seasonal (who wants to look at frost in June?). Water and sunsets or sunrises might work quite well I guess.
Another option would be to follow up Gordon’s interests and see if there is anything he does which would make good picture?
Anyone any thoughts?
