From Santa's sleigh
Merry Christmas Horia thanks for this update on Santas' progress. Also for your great contributions to this amazing site.
so you know Santa on a personal basis eh? Impressive ;o) A very nice shot, and a great idea behind it too. The shady outlines of the peaks and the clouds are beautful to gaze upon.
A very merry christmas to you and your family my friend :o)
Superba imaginea din sania mosului. Multumesc pentu o asa felicitare frumoasa.
Si tie iti urez un Craciun Fericit si un An Nou plin de realizari, sanatate si mult succes in cariera !!
I do hope Santa is not so old that he forgets where MY house is!!! I asked him for a new lens! I'm glad he was able to let go of the reins long enough to snap this picture. It is an interesting long view with those puffy clouds.
Thank you for the good wishes. I send them back to you as well.
TFS today, yesterday and tomorrow!

Once more excellent and pleasant colour and light tones of the shot. I like interchange of sharp and smooth areas of the clouds. Vertical cropping is so impressive. DOF and exposure are superb too.

This is a good one, you always look at things from "High" prespective :) The view is very elegant and blanced, with beautiful light and atmosphere.
Thanks very much for your words, a lot of work has to be done, take into account that there were only walls and roof, but if everything goes well, in 2 or 3 months I will be there.
Receive also our best wishes in this days for you and your relatives.
Merry Christmas from Felipe & Cris.
excelente trabajo y pov,
sensacional trabajo y hermosa vista...
Merry Christmas to you and your family!!!
I must be a very naughty girl as santa has not visited me. I hope you put a good word in for me.
Beautiful shot of the clouds, well composed and beautiful colours
A very original wish from SANTA to us. Thanks for that. A nice composition. It's a photo with a lot of serenity. Wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
There is one thing for sure. SANTA didn't fly at that time above the Netherlands (-:
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Lovely details in the carpet of clouds, well exposed!
Seasonal greetings from Norway,
A PEACEFUL AND MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU!
Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year to you too.
Wonderful card presented with such love. Beautiful clouds and from above them they create a fantastic effect. Great soft lighting and colours. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

You have great connections up in the north.
(ha ha or must I so ho ho). Santa did an excellent job with the clouds above the mountaintops.
Merry Christmas to you and your family

A photo taken from where the air is very thin and cold. Amazing sense of depth. I hope you have a great holiday season, and Santa Claus was very good to you.

Thank you very much for the wishes. I liked the composition of clouds here a lot. Thanks a lot for sharing.
N-am stiut ca Mosul zboara atat de sus si nici ca face fotografii atat de frumoase :)
Multumesc pentru urarile de sarbatori!
Banuiesc ca fotografia asta ai facut-o la intoarcerea ta din SUA sau atunci cand te-ai dus. Ai avut o priveliste minunata de sus cu toti norii aia care se intindeau sub avion. Iti multumesc inca o data si iti urez Sarbatori Fericite si La Multi Ani!
