Hello Tony,
This is a very nice picture, very nice colors and excellent
POV. I'm sorry for not stopping by recently I have been so busy.
I'm very happy to see your pictures and I hope I still can see
many more.. Have a great day my friend


Good Morning Tony,
A glorious landscape capture with great coloured sky and siluets of the green vegetations. Great composition my friend!
Have a nice new week!

Hi Tony

A lovely shot of the rising sun illuminating the bottom layer of this stratus cloud. Well seen and captured.

Ahh.What a stunning picture.Ultimate picture to be framed and hung besides a fire place.

nice colors and refreshes the mood.


You have captured the essence of dawn here Tony. I do believe there is or are more correctly, some very big differences in the waves of light as to tell difference between dusk and dawn. Very interesting image to choose and show off that particular angle of time...

Hi Tony,

You were so fortunate to get this if it was only a momentary scene. How stunning that sky is! The colors are just beautiful. I love the trees framing part of the picture.

Hello Tony, wonderful landscape shot. TFS. Regards,

Hi Tony,

Wonderfully rich colours in this stunning composition. What a sunrise and splendid colours. WOW....The black FG makes the sky so nice and so soft. I'm a bit jealous. At this moment we had terrible weather. Hole day rain and windy conditions (7 BFT)

Have a nice day. TFS and Greetings Bob

Hi Tony!

I always forget that you live down under... and that it's winter there! Oh, I'm looking that much forward to being in winter again! Intense and pure light as the one you show in your marvellous picture also is the result of that fascinating season.

Kind regards


Hi Tony,
A great landscape shot of this beautiful place in all aspects.thanks for sharing.

Hello Tony,
A wonderful sunset with silhouettes of the trees an bushes in the FG set in a fine composition.
It is hard to grasp that this is a shot taken in the winter!. In S. Sweden such a winter shot would be taken at about 4 pm and the deciduous trees would have no leaves. You must live in a wonderful climate!
TFS this beauty,
Best wishes,

Hi Tony,
Good to see you again. A lovely capture of this beautiful landscape. Lovely colors of sky. Well composed with a very nice view. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hola Tony,
beautiful work,
with nice colors and harmonic silhouettes,
few minutes... magic moments :))
dear friend.

Hello Tony,

This is stunning!
Since I have been taking photographs, I have been so much more alert to the changes in the sky! I am amazed at the colours Mother Nature creates and this is a very fine example! I love how the colours change, as the eyes traverse the sky, from pale peachs, to vivid oranges and finally to strong purples!
The silhouettes frame it nicely.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Tony,

Merhaba Tony,
Oldukça etkileyici bir manzara fotosu bu . Enfes renkler ve harika bir kompozisyon olmuş. Eline sağlık.

Hello Tony,

I really like this astonishing winter sky. The colors are wonderful even on my poor LCD screen at work (I can't wait to look at it from home this evening!). Excellent POV and exposition! How is the winter in NZ? Do you have lot of snow? In your picture it looks like trees keep their leaves???

Cheers and TFS!


Hi Tony!

This sky has so unique colors I've never seen such! Usually either the whole sky is glowing or none but here just some clouds are illuminated. It has a special mood, I like it very much, TFS!

Best regards,

Hi Tony.
We have not such colourful winter days in our region. Amazing colours palette of the sunset. I like tree ornament of the picture too. My kind regards and TFS.

Hi Tony,
I am into a sunset mode, so I had to choose this one from your gallery. I like how you captured the gradient movement of colors form almost white to almost black. The silhoutte of the trees add good depth and interest to the overall composition. You have to consider yourself luck to have this type of view from your house.
