This picture must take it's rightful place in the Art Gallery, dear Yan!

Warm regards, Eva

Thank you Eva. Will we hang it in among the golden classics or in the modern art section?

Warmly,

Yan

I agree with Eva, it is pure art Ian, and I'm pleased to see you have the tag. ;-)

I'm not so good with those, and I do appreciate your gentle nudges.

It has a feel of Egypt about it, I can't say why.

Greetings, Amelia

Hi Amelia,

There are many interesting places to lay a camera. If I were carrying a tripod around I wouldn't have seen such a possibility, so for me night photography without a tripod is part of my art modus operandi.

It's lovely for you to communicate your appreciation of this. Eva knows my art well, for one piece is called "Night Music Comes Floating Across the Dnepr". I haven't titled this one yet, so do you have a suggestion from your fertile mind?

My warmest regards to you and yours, Amelia. When are you returning to Norway?

I have posted most of this reply onto Night Music etc. Ian. Your titles are in no need of help. :D.

But in this one I think maybe you could mention Helios. (BTW this is the name of a beautiful piece of music by Carl Nielsen).

But as it reminds me of Egypt, perhaps you could incorporate Ra in the title. Not much inspiration here for you!

I'm just in the middle of booking my flight to Norway now, but will come back to the UK in 3 or so weeks, assuming that all continues to go well that is. Otherwise, it will be a quick and instantaneous flight back to the UK.

Greetings dear Ian, Amelia

Dear Amelia,

Ἥλιος it is! The semi-circular light in the ocean of darkness is the context of Ἥλιος!

Best wishes for your return and prayers for your grandson.

Ian

Thank you for your greetings, Roberto, and I am pleased that this image surprised you.

Ian
