Congratulations my friend. I wish you many hundreds. Best wishes to New Zealand

Hi Tony

Happy anniversary! It's a bit strange: usually the person that celebrates an anniversary gets presents from the guests. In your case it's the contrary: once again, you offer us a magnificient present!

Hello Tony

How fast the time flies by,Congratulations on this your 100th post here on TN!
I have enjoyed every one of them.This is no exception.
The sun behind the clouds(like it is just about to burst out) is glorious and uplifting.
Whenever I see this effect of the sun it always seems like a spiritual moment,so I guess it is fitting to be a milestone posting for you.
Your work is the best promotion for NZ,I think many of us here would love to visit these places you are documenting and showing us.
The lighting and colours are lovely in this ...keep up the amazing work.
