Greetings Ueliton. Thank you for the compliments. I enjoyed being there among the colour of summer.

Hello Bruno,

Thanks for the visit and appreciation. Surprising perhaps, but this windmill doesn't work any more. The sunflowers are a source of vegetable oil.


Ian Stehbens on February 23, 2012

Greetings again, Berend. I have been out on the "Downs" as we colloquially call this area, and enjoyed the photo opportunities.

Great landscape and Photo - I like it! Bw Ricky Lu

Ian Stehbens on February 25, 2012

Thanks Ricky. I felt that the sky was the great gift for photography that morning, and it only needed a stroke of yellow to complement it and to counterbalance the vertical of the mill. I must admit that it was tempting to ascend a hill, or climb the mill to enjoy the swathes of colour, though.

Another great coincidence between our countries dear Ian, but you've had a bit more luck... your sunflowers are bright and the sky has a wonderful clarity ;)!!! While news of the recent rains are far from encouraging, I hope the floods have not done much harm to people!!! I hope you and your family are well!!!

Greetings and blessings, Toto

Beautiful photo of a beautiful place! Greetings from Melbourne, Fritz L6

Dear Toto,

The rains have certainly refreshed our inland river systems, and the lower Murray River will be receiving record floods from southern Queensland at the same time as record floods from Victoria and the Murrumbidgee and Lachlan Rivers deliver their near record floods. There combined areas that have been flooded is equivalent to all of Argentina. We don't often have this, because southern Australia usually has its wet weather in the winter 6 months and Queensland has its wet weather in the summer 6 months.

The district of this photo has had little rain lately, though they had a flood last year, after a long drought.

The colours of sky and sunflowers certainly complement each other.

Warmest regards,


Ian Stehbens on March 6, 2012

Hello Chaydeé,

Toto is a good friend of mine too, and I hope one day to be able to visit him and explore Argentina. So welcome to my gallery and I trust we are able to share with each other too.

Thanks for the compliment.

Best wishes from Brisbane.

Greetings 行者无路,

Thank you for your encouragement. You are most welcome to my gallery. Surely the yellow fields of sunflowers remind you of the yellow fields of Yunnan, Szechwan, Hunan.....
