Kind regards, Finn

That's a beautiful area Ian and a nice picture. LIKE! Greetings Berend

Thanks, Berend. I am sure I don't have to keep whetting your appetite for a return to OZ, but there is a world of Aussie green for you to explore when you are able to come.

And many tracks to follow...


Ian Stehbens on April 30, 2013

I love the tracks that lead me home, Gary, and I love the tracks that take me anywhere at all, especially when I am in Tasmania.

Greetings Nick,

As I stood here, at the end of the day, I could here the occasional roar of a stag in the hills behind me, watch roos grazing among the grasstrees not far away.

This is my Australia, Nick.

The clouds were moving away to the east, Finn, allowing the late afternoon sun to illuminate the landscape in its golden glow, and promise a beautiful morrow.

The summer rain has made the world around me very green and, as you can see in the ungrazed field to the left, the approaching winter has already brought the grasses to seed putting a tinge of ripeness across the landscape.

Hi Ian

Love your title to the picture; the sunlight illuminating the winding path back home with the weather threatening to close in.

It is strange how the mind works. It reminded me of an old chap, many years ago, who had been in the First World War at Wipers. He liked a pint and said that he used to come out of the hostelry and follow the tram lines to a point where they stopped. Two paces further and two paces to the right was his front door.

I suppose in them days you could leave the door open!

All the best from England, Peter

Ian Stehbens on May 5, 2013

Thanks Peter.

I don't mind your little diversions for they are the stuff of friendship. I Hope the old soldier didn't get run over by a tram one night.

I will be in Ieper/Ypres/Wipers in June, btw.

Thanks Ian

My old mate was made to retire at 80 years old, and lasted about another 3 years. Many of his young colleagues used to visit and take him to the nearby hostelry; he enjoyed a pint as his original job was as a glass blower!

How strange that you will be in Ypres, a connection with his old comrades.

Best wishes Peter

for this green landscape.



Ian Stehbens on May 14, 2013

Thanks Ahmet. As I drive around Poland and Germany at this time of the year, the greens are so vivid and the rapeseed yellow so intense that I see our green landscapes as unique with their different tints and tones.

Kindest regards,


Ian Stehbens on May 14, 2013

Thanks flyingdutchman. I appreciate your visit and encouragement.
