[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I choose to call this rooftops because of two reasons; one, the sky is like a roof and two, 'coz this is a shot from my homes' roof-top.
The silhouette of mountains that we see in this shot, for those that do not know, are the lesser Himalayas.
Rooftops also because these are places where we dream about God, fairies and angels as kids, have glowing fantasies when we're in a stage of adolescence, and as we mature it becomes a place to nurture ambition, clear our thoughts and to some, wish we were children again!
Paul Haynes is perhaps amongst my most favoured photographers for the simple reason that his shots create magic for me, kindle fantasies that make me feel like I'm a child all over again....And I respect his style, a true-blue individualistic, signature style.
I'd love to meet and perhaps see what his take on India is...photographically, that is!
Thanks Paul, for all the lovely shots and for all the support bro!

Hello Goldy

A beautiful capture of these clouds .The lighting is lovely.
The horizon looks very good with the mountain in the back drop.
Excellent lovely colours.


Nobody better...I love Paul's works and I admire it daily in more ways than I can say...and to have you, with your own special technique, dedicate to him is special for both of you!

Hello my friend,
i am honoured to have you dedicate this to me and also your very kind words too, it is lovely to hear how much you enjoy my photos, it helps make it all seem worthwhile! It would indeed be great to meet you, be it here or in your beautiful country - who knows?!
The light you have caught here is just lovely though, and you've framed it so that the glowing clouds fall away perfectly to the bottom right...just the right amount of sky and land...thank you so much!

Hi Goldy.
I like you pleasant shot of a nice cloudy sky. Its delicate lighting and tender colours, composition, impressive dark shapes of the hills create a nice composition of calm state of nature in your edges. My compliments for so poetic work.

Hello Goldy,
A fine view of a beautiful sky, the clouds decorating the 'roof-top' in a fine way. I also like the skyline, an indication of what a beautiful part of India you live in.
As Paul is a master at landscapes, this is a fine tribute to him.
TFS this fine image,

Hi Goldy,

I love the picture, the title and the notes. The clouds above the lesser Himalayas are beautiful. A nice dedication to Paul who I am sure would find India to be a photographer's delight.


Hello Goldy,
Perfect dedication to a great photographer like Paul and he deserved for the credit for it!
this is the most natural sunrise well captured with great depth in it with natural colouration and details
well done and cheers

Hello Goldy,

Nice dedication to Paul.
Good shot of the clouds with beautiful colours.


Paesaggio poetico, come le note che hai scritto, fantastiche queste nuvole che fanno volare la fantasia, all'orizzonte le montagne che rappresentano fisicamente il nostro bisogno elevarci spiritualmente. Bellissima luce e bellissimi i colori. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Whether sunrise or sunset?, great timing/time of day with an interesting sky and hills in near silhouette Goldy.
Well composed and great color also :)

Hello Goldy
Belle composition,les couleurs du ciel sont très jolies.
Merci et au revoir...JP
