Wow Ian that's a great shot. Taken at the right time. Greetings Berend

Ian Stehbens on August 30, 2009

It is all action: bubbles, surges, swashes and backwashes, spurts and jets! Dear Berend, Arthur, Greetje and Kim,

When you are there, it is such a dynamic environment, that you are not sure where water will erupt or flow next. All surprises!!! But my camera survived.

Thank you each for your positive reactions and encouragement.

Good morning Ian!! Impressive this photo..and without color! I like it! Best wishes, Simona

Ian Stehbens on September 1, 2009

Good morning, Simona. Thanks for your encouragement and affirmation. The jets of water shooting into the air certainly entrall the visitor.

Warmest regards from Tonga,

I am glad that you have enjoyed this very different landscape, Csaba. Thanks for the compliment.

great ..scape

Ian Stehbens on September 10, 2009

Thanks Sig. I agree. It is hard to know whether this is seascape or landscape: but it is a bit like Iceland where one can be caught between the ice and the volcanics.

Warm regards,

Been there! B

Hi Ben. So when are you bringing Mum and Dad to Tonga, so you can show them all this?


Ian Stehbens on September 16, 2009

Thanks ira96. It is a very different place.

Warm regards,


Matt Haysom on September 16, 2009

Great shot Ian - very dramatic!


Ian Stehbens on September 18, 2009

There's plenty of coastal 'drama' in Tonga, Matt so I am satisfied that I have conveyed that with this image.
