Very nice picture Ian. Like the Pandanus palms in the foreground. Must see it full screen. Greetings Berend
You have maybe noticed that there are comments saying "you are a great Photographer... see my cute wife.." or words like these. Never opens the subject, it's a Trojan horse virus!!!
Very impressive shot.
Thanks indeed, Jeff and Berend. It was a great landscape/seascape in which to photograph!
very impressive, nice shot. Greetings from Greetje.
Very impressive, great shot. And indeed you have to see it in fullscreen.
Greetings from Greetje.
Can you imagine, Greetje what it was like to stand there and see it in the fullest screen possible - surround-a-sound! Thanks for appreciating this.
Wow! For several moments I thought it was a B&W, Ian. Then I zoomed and saw the green of the foliage below the palms and a hint of aquamarine in the sea. It is full of life and beautifully balanced. Good one! Theolfa
I love the "bit of aquamarine" best, there in the thrashing turmoil of the ocean its inner self is revealed. Thank you for the compliment. It was a great place to be.
This one seems a B\W composition but is not, for sure a splendid work, well done my friend...
Huges from Portugal....
You make me very happy, Conquilha!! And a hug from Tonga.
Warm greetings from the South Pacific,
Green, in a small corner strong and fresh.. A foamy blue is fluttering, rising and sometimes settling down.
Such a section dear Ian, which is combative, deep, powerful,fresh and fescinating with your magnificent point of view...
Warmest greetings. Füsun
Wow, Ian - apart from an accident with a pack of OMO washing powder, or maybe an emergency on an airport runway - I don't think I've EVER seen so much foam in one place, at one time!! It is beautiful - Mother Nature's fluffy, fizzy, bubbly, frothy, shimmering white lace.
Thank you for sharing this with us.
Warmest wishes, Hazel
Hi Füsun and Hazel:
Your poetic responses are very very much appreciated!!
But you must admit that to go from combative and powerful to shimmering white lace in the one scene can only be achieved in poetry. Isn't imagination and our ability to express that in words a special gift we share.
With imagination I can perceive our joint photographic exhibition of a Seth Efrican watercolourist, Turkish artist/poet and an Aussie geographer in Istanbul.
With much warmth and hugs,
Hi, Ian, when I first saw this stunning photo, I thought it was snow!!...in Tonga!!... I soon realised, excellent. You also have a stunning gallery of your amazing travels, which I must add to my favourites. Best regards, John. U.K.
This one speaks of the power of the sea! A good one, Ian.
Greetings John G and Snemann,
That you both appreciate this image means much to me. It was a joy to be there, to see and to receive!
And I hope we get to share regularly, John ... at least when I am back in Australia (which will be soon) with better online access.
