Stunning and very beautiful, this art photography, Ian!

Greetings, May

I echo May!

Ian Stehbens on January 16, 2008

It seemed too simple, perhaps and I thought it may not be appreciated, but to have you two highly competent artists and landscape photographers like it gives me joy. Thank you May and Marilyn, so much.

When I saw this possibility, I wasn't sure that I would actually be able to move into the precise position needed. It did require going over the edge of the cliff a wee bit, and I wouldn't rate it as dangerous (not for a photographer) but I know some who would prefer to be somewhere else.

My first thought on title, Inscription Point, wasn't creative enough and ran the risk of giving the impression that this is its real name. Taken on the cliffs of Cape Solander, which James Cook named as he visited Botany Bay in 1770 for 8 days that changed the world.

It is very successful picture, Yan. Though I know, that nothing can stop the photographer, but, please, be cautious during photographic surveying! Eva

Ian Stehbens on January 17, 2008

I am glad you like it too, Eva. And I will be careful, very careful...though a little risk sometimes adds real value to a photo, don't you think?

Special greetings to you in Ukraine. And thank you for taking us to Kiev and sharing your summer holiday in Italy with us.

Dear Jacques,

You are so kind and so appreciative. I hope that my pictures always give you enjoyment and ideas that encourage your photography.


Your friend, Ian, in Sydney.

very interesting Ian, it´s looking like a stony starship, which float over the ocean (and watch out for some photographers?!?).

Ian Stehbens on January 17, 2008

I much preferred to photograph this from my nook on the cliff-top, rather than stand on the starship. It just might have taken me to another galaxy!

I am always looking out for alien ships to photograph. I'll let you know when I shoot one.

Ian PS: I enjoyed your grafitti images - rather bigger than life size and colourful.

It is a perfect illustration to Genesis 1:7, Ian :)

Greetings, Inessa

Ian Stehbens on January 18, 2008

"And it was so," Inessa. And as I sat there, I felt I was sitting in the plane of the horizon. And a spiritual awe rose up within. I am therefore pleased that others are appreciating my piece of visual poetry.

Now Psalm 8 is flowing through my mind. Ian
