Oh, my... I don't need to explain anymore. I would simply give this miracle Golden ☆ + Best Of

Oh, my... that is wonderful praise, B@ngkok. Thank you. Such moments are precious. I was there hoping the setting sun may come beneath the clouds, but I was content when this cloud window opened and glory shone down upon the valley.

What a beautiful landscape, Ian! Love the green trees and pastures, and the heavenly spotlight makes it even more beautiful! The title is just perfect for the wonderful picture! Greetings, Anne

I will be very sorry if I didn't VOTE for this super shot!

Dear Anne,

You know how much I love the landscape around you there, especially when old stonework is illuminated in golden light and the magnificence of the forests are all around clothing the hillsides in a dark rich coat.

This landscape has some of the same elements, yet the two are so different. But both are specially beautiful. I know we agree. And together we can rejoice. It is great to share these images of my surround with you.

And thank you also, Ah-Pong for enjoying this moment and place.

Wow... :-)

It got me quite excited to see the sun break through - and I had my camera!!

Warm regards Mathias.

Every time I visit your gallery I can find interesting pictures. This one above is a very good example of what I mean... :)

Ian Stehbens on March 11, 2010

Hello Piotr,

I am grateful for your encouraging comment and visit. I love visiting this place, and in an earlier comment I mentioned that while it was overcast in the valley, I came up here to see if the sun might break though under the cloud at the end of the day, but instead a window opened and it shone through!

Warm regards,
