I like this! You have such a good eye for curves and lines.. and the talent to get it pictured well.

Warm greets, Fried

Thank you Fried. Being able to drive to high altitudes and explore this wonderful mountain wilderness (with both its grandeur and the delicacy of its miniature rock gardens and microplants) had filled me with excitement. I was so appreciative of every thing that I saw that it really wasn't possible to take a poor photo.

Great composition Ian, you've been around. Greetings Berend

And it has been privilege - every bit of it, Berend. This lookout was one of my stops on a solitary drive over the Rockies!! I was captivated by every scene, every bend, every creature!

Thanks for the compliment.

Greetings, Ian (in Auckland)

Thanks . I am sure they built the walkway with landscape photographers in mind! What a day of exploring and driving I had!!!

Warmest regards,

Hi Ian.... a very inviting walkway. Love the texture of the timber in the rail and boards. Sometimes the impact of humans is nice to look at? Good to see you are still travelling and taking great snaps.


Ian Stehbens on March 23, 2011

Agreed, Greg. Finding an appropriate foreground is very important in landscape photography. I appreciate your response to this. Currently in NZ.

Warm regards,

Is it for your work, Ian, that you travel a lot?

Cordially, - Fried

Ian Stehbens on March 25, 2011

Hello Fried,

I do have opportunities to live in different countries because of my work, and often the visits are short stays. It is all privilege, and gives some wonderful opportunities for landscape photography. Tonga, NZ, Solomon Islands and Indonesia are quite often visited, but I have been to Europe and US on a few occasions.

Your wandering friend,
