[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
2007.09.12 6:30AM CET I was walking inside Poniatowski Park. I was enjoying one of mist&light spectacles made by nature. To be honest I was taking picture, but thinking about something else. Thirteen hours later my wife Joanna gave birth our firs son Michal [Michael]. God, it was longest and hardest day in my entire life, but fortunatelly it ended well :-)

Hi Greg,
Congratulations to you both, a fairly momentous occasion for you. This is a nice image and a great keepsake of the day, especially given your thoughts during your walk. Obviously some fairly unique inspiration went into this and you've created a very atmospheric image. The title fits perfectly.
Best regards to all three of you :-)

Hi Grzegorz,
Concratulations with the most beautiful day of your life!! I am quite sure that the picture reflects your mindset at that moment. I wish you a very happy futere with the three of you,.
Regards, Ruud

A magical atmosphere - I like it so much Greg.
My best wishes to your son, my best wishes for you three.
Wonderful shot, thanks and greetings

Saludos desde Gran Canaria, JL.

Czesc Grzegorz! Dobre zdjecie. Robi wrazenie.

Hello Greg

What a great contribute to a new born - allmost biblical. Wonderful picture with the sunbeams coming through the trre tops and giving life to earth - very symbolic to the new life represented by your new baby. I like the colours and the handling of the light very much building a very calm atmosphere.

Congratulations to you and your wife. Looking forward to see his first shots:-0.

May his life be happy and meaningful.

May you be Blessed. This is the most emotional and happy dedications I have ever seen.

Hi Greg,
Long time no communicate! First and foremost, congratulations to you and Joanna on the birth of your son. Your life will be forever changed for the better. This is a very beautiful shot. Amazing light rays thru the trees. It has a mystical quality to it. Guess it was just a magical day!

Hi Greg,
The light beams have such a 3D effect here.
Reading the title and seeing the light I thought you were anouncing an angel.
Reading further I see you were anouncing your little angel.
Congrats again on the arrival of your blessing Michal.
Cool image also.

Hi Proud Dad,

Now to the picture. Yes it looks like the lights from heaven are falling upon the ground. An excellent capture. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Greg,
Many congratulations on the birth of your son.
I wonder if he will become a great nature photographer like his father
....I'm sure he'll be an idiot ;)
You must be very very proud.
Give my best wishes and congratulations to Joanna too.

When my wife Jan started to go into labour with our first I was at the top of the Port Hills above Christchurch on my mountain bike (at about 1am !) Luckily I got down in time for the birth,which was at home.

A very special day for you ... and a very nice shot to celebrate it.
Well done!
