Superb b&w - most excellent!

Ian Stehbens on October 24, 2011

Your praise is very much appreciated, Denise, thanks. Must admit that it is a pretty dramatic coast and it is not called the "Weather Coast" in vain.

Warm regards,

Ian (out in the Pacific again)

Amazing location and a beautiful picture Ian. Like. cheer, archrodney!

Ian Stehbens on May 25, 2012

Thank you Archrodney. It is not a location very many people ever get to see - it requires several hours of travel in a small boat with an outboard motor - and some of the journey is among the big ocean waves of the open sea. ~~~~ trough ~~~~crest ~~~ trough ~~~~ crest ~~~~

Thanks for the appreciation of the image.

Nice picture, Ian. It´s a remote and beautiful place that reminds me of a scene of 'Apocalypse Now'!! lol. Happy 2013 and greetings from Spain.

Ian Stehbens on December 31, 2012

Greetings tunante,

Remote is an accurate assessment - few locals can afford the fuel to take a boat to Honiara - over 200kms away. And the mood between downpours fluctuates from apocalyptic or idyllic.

Thanks for your appreciative comment, and New Year greetings.

May 2013 be fruitful, joyful and fulfilling for you.

Thanks Ediponc.

Greetings from the South Pacific.
