The title reinds me to go to bed and have some sleep! I love your photos, Ian! I didn't get round up to now to the Tonga journey with you, but I keep it in mind.

Warm regards, May

Dear May,

I trust you are now refreshed, and as you gaze out the valleys are filled with glorious light to make vibrant your emerging summer.

It is very satisfying, May to be able to offer some images that you appreciate. Panoramio has certainly encouraged my photography, and given me a purpose to try to create better compositions and images. Thanks very much for your part in it.

And I didn't quite finish writing the East Coast of 'Eua, Tonga journal. But your prompt may get e to do so. Thanks.

Best regards, Ian

Dear Axl,

I am delighted, of course, that you like this image so much. The Southern Alps of New Zealand are majestic.

Warm regards,

Dear Eva,

What a joy to receive your comments. I so much enjoy sharing with you. Our visit to NZ was very very special, and I had a special time with the camera.

This view of Mt Sefton was quite awesome, for its gown was pink (coloured by the red dust from interior Australia) and its evening gown made it seem even more majestic than when it had appeared cloud free only about an hour earlier. The weather was changing.

Best and warmest regards,

Thank you, Roland. I appreciate your enjoyment of this image. This majesty was all around us here among the Southern Alps. Sefton is a challenging peak for climbers. A few minutes earlier it was aspiring above us, then it was clothed in this shawl, ever so quickly. She knew how to get dressed in a hurry for a night out!

Warm regards,
