Hi Tony.
Thanks for kind note and warm greetings. Thanks for so nice picture too. Once more perfect landscape picture from you with stunning colour tones, brilliant framing and composition and sharpness. My congratulations and best wishes.

Another brilliant sunrise captured welcoming the new year. You are right about the first nation to see the light. Nice ambiance and very colorful sky. I like the land/sky division in keeping the perspective very well. Thanks for sharing and best regards. Jusni
