I like this pink sunrises down on the southern hemisphere - i made a similar picture in the south of New Zealand.

Well done with the contrast of the eucalyptus tree.

Cheers, Andreas

It is a joy to travel and to experience very different atmospheres and lighting in different realms of the world. The cold dry air of a New England winter is always so sharp. We were driving south that morning from Brisbane to Sydney, and as we watched the first light of dawn I could see that the stratus cloud would be interesting as it was illuminated. In this stretch of highway there are few trees - mostly cleared land for sheep grazing. But at 100kph I saw this lone tree and thought that was just what I was looking for. It was an instant decision. I am glad that you have enjoyed your time in this part of the world - I love your homeland too. Kind regards, Ian

That´s right traveling through different places of the world alway brings joy end lots of experiences. It´s always interesting to hear the story behind a picture - thanks. I´ve only been to Sydney for a week, but the rest of Australia is sure worth another journey someday. I like your new nightshots from Sydney.

Greetings from Bavaria, Andreas!

beautiful sunrise... splendid photo... Ian, you're great!


Ian Stehbens on January 4, 2008

I am very pleased that you have enjoyed this and other pictures, Rafal. Today I have returned from holidays and I will soon be posting new pictures. When I do I would appreciate your opinion on them. Greetings from Sydney.

Rafal Ociepka on January 4, 2008

This picture belongs to my favourites. It's perfect for me. I'm looking forward to see your new photos.

This is a beautiful sunrise, Ian. I love the shape of the tree. It gets a yellow star from me, and I have also added you to my favorites list!

Greetings from Oregon, DeEtte :)

Ian Stehbens on January 17, 2008

Dear DeEtte and Rafal,

To have you both grant YS for my photography is humbly and gratefully acknowledge. In fact, as this is one of my creative outlets and joys, I regard your appreciation as precious.

DeEtte, I have appreciated your work too, and I especially recall your photo of Mt Hood taken from Boring. It is a very affirming and lovely network or fellowship that is happening through the Panoramio conversations. Thank you or being a very positive part of it.

Dear Rafal,

I presume you may have been away as I haven't heard much from you just lately, but I look forward to many more exchanges.

And very belatedly, Andreas, please forgive me for not acknowledging your comment about my night pictures of Sydney. Some of them have become very popular through GE, and my family and colleagues appreciate them too. All this really does inspire me and I trust it gives you joy to connect with and see the images of so many travellers/photography. And I may be in Tonga again this year.

Dear Epi,

Thanks for your note of appreciation. I hope this tree becomes famous - isn't it special? Greetings from Sydney.

Ian Stehbens on February 16, 2008

You will have seen plenty of wonderful day's beginnings and ends in your travelling here in Australia as well as everywhere else you have been!

And thanks for the greeting, too, Brian.



Ian Stehbens on February 16, 2008

Thankyou Monika for your appreciation and greetings. Greetings from Australia.

Thanks Andreas, Isn't it sad when someone sets out to destroy something so positive as Panoramio by creating false addresses and viral spam!!

Thanks for your care, Ian.

I have over 60 of these spam messages, so I wondered what happened at Panoramio central? Poor guys.

By the way I am off to Tonga in a fortnight, and hope to get to 'Eua.

Andreas Wiesner on May 29, 2008

Hi Ian! I had lot´s of this messages as well... really annoying!

If you get to ´Eua, i can recommend a guesthouse called Taina´s place - a quiet and relaxing family run place.

Happy travels in Tonga! I´m looking forward to see new pictures.

Cheers, Andreas!

Ian Stehbens on May 29, 2008

Being well known in Tonga has many advantages, but it may mean that there isn't enough time to get to 'Eua, but I certainly hope we can. And if we need accommodation it will be at Taina's Guesthouse. Lonely Planet gives it a good description as well.

Kind regards,


Andreas Wiesner on May 29, 2008

Taina is a very kind woman - and a good host: picked me up at the ferry and on sunday i was invited to eat from the umu! Great experience for me!

Cheers, Andreas!
