Thank you Dino. I was there to photograph a bushfire that was burning on the other side of the lake, but then this piece of beauty was far more attractive.

Warm regards,

Nice picture Ian. Greetings Berend

Thanks Ricky. In your travels have you been here? This is a special part of my world.



Ian Stehbens on November 3, 2012

Thanks, Berend. I thought that this wouldn't be selected for GE, but it has been to my surprise. And I hadn't come here to photograph the tree, but its beauty captured me.

Warm regards,

Hello Ian, you have spring, but now winter is coming on the norhtern hemisphere. Once more greetings from Austria, Josef. L!!!

Ian Stehbens on November 4, 2012

Hello Josef. It is truly special to receive a message from you. Over the last couple of years I have been living in several different locations and this has disrupted the flow of my Panoramio involvement. But we are just about settled into the fun of retirement, now.

Yes it is really summer here already, and the weather is quite delightful. There is a lot of colour about now.

All the best,

Hi dear Ian,

Really an incredible view!! and yes very artistic!

Love Füsun

Dear ƤōƝƓ,

Very belatedly, I thank you for your affirmation.. and look what happened the next to comment was a recognised artist, our dear sister Füsun.

To tell the truth I didn't expect this image to be accepted for GE, but I am pleased that there is room for some more artistic images as well as wonderful landscapes on GE.

May 2013 be special for you.


Ian Stehbens on January 7, 2013

And thank you, too, dear . This is exactly where we will go for a barbecue, when you make it to Australia. We will celebrate our landscape and our friendship around a barbecue... with kookaburras and pretty-faced wallabies watching.
