Greetings Mataiva and Makis.

Your appreciation of this artistic photo delights me. It was taken in the semi darkness before sun rise, so it required a very slow shutter speed. Thanks very much for the L + YS, Makis. I hope you both are encouraged to try similar photography for digital cameras give us this opportunity.

May the "romantique" and "mystique" remain with you, always.

Thank you everybody. To receive so many notes of appreciation from so many different parts of the globe is quite an honour both for me and for the valley in which this photo was taken.

Your Like nominations are appreciated Alex and Polifemo. Your affirmations, Pater, Diego, darjoluis and Changhong are very much appreciated too.

One day, Maja, you might waltz in this landscape - I hope - and then you won't be lost for words!

Warmest regards from Sydney, to which I have just returned - hence the long delay in my answering your messages.

Ian Stehbens on December 10, 2010

Thanks again, Barbara. The winter fogs are a feature of this area, and as it was my childhood area its atmosphere and mood is a special part of my memory. I was very pleased to be able to record it in this way.

Kind regards,
