It was a living, breathing vista Marek. And after standing there on the range above it, we descended into the midst of it and there inside the forests we thrilled by its vibrant greens.

Warm regards from Australia to Poland.

In focusing on the flood, I missed the mists, Ian. Very beautiful, atmospheric photo, filled with life!

Dear Marilyn,

Thank you for affirming my love of this photo. This depicts the world I love and I am sure it will be eventually hung in my gallery. The mists exaggerate for me the bands of different forests.

Warmest regards from Brisbane,

Merci, kaouyana. It is a landscape and a photo that I like also. This is my home area.

But these greetings come from Tonga - who an hour ago defeated France in the Rugby World Cup and ... I can hear Tonga celebrating right now!
