Maja, Anne, Herta, nctm and Ben:

I have posted indivdual replies to you each, above.


Maja Weidemueller on March 14, 2010

Don't tempt me dear Ian, I have always been a bit of a free wheel, born under a wandrin star perhaps :)) ....

Warmest greetings to either of your far away paradises, Maja

Ian Stehbens on March 14, 2010

Dear Maja,

How do I make the temptation even stronger, such that your coming is realised? Wandering stars are welcome here. We'll be in Tonga for another 5monts this year, and do it again next year! That leaves 7 mths for Australia and after that... who knows.

Hopefully waiting.


Maja Weidemueller on March 14, 2010

Dear Ian - who knows??? We do, if only we want to... trust.

Warm hugs from your wandering star.

Lovely composition, it looks like wave of snow to me

Dear Maja,

If a wandering star should come this way,... let's see, how does the song go?

No, no.

No, I don't like its words or sentiments, for "Home is made for comin to! And only some people make you cry.

Perhaps "Catch a falling star" is better.

Let's hope so. There are hosts on this side of the world that would welcome a wanderer.

Hello Utpal,

A wave of snow about to break over the previous wave and dump snow on a glacial beach!

Thanks for your visit to my gallery. I am pleased with your interpretation of this landscape for it reveals a love of beauty and your creative thinking.

Dear Ian, what an impressing view! You caught in this beautiful photo the aggregation of water in a way, as if it was at the beginning of creation. Fascinating! 'BO'!

My warmest wishes, May

Excellent picture of this natures beauty. It is a breathtaking look ofer the glacier.

Best wishes, Martin

Ian Stehbens on March 19, 2010

Dear May and Martin,

The impression that we are seeing the dynamics of water at the very beginning was very much part of my thinking at the time.

It was so large, without any sign of human activity, and so raw that I felt as if I was in the midst of one of the worlds' wildest places. It was beautiful. It was breathtaking. It WAS awesome.

And the weather did change, and change so quickly.

Thank you both very much for your appreciation of it.

It can be bitterly cold, but this particular day it was rather warm.

Greetings to you, Bulbas from both Sydney and New Zealand!
