Lovely capture, Andreas.

We have reservations for Greece and Turkey after I have a surgery for a total knee replacement in January, '07. We are due to leave in April.

Can you share with me which tripod combination you used? I'm looking for a fairly light, but secure tripod with a ball head that I'll be able to carry when visiting Greece and Turkey this Spring.

Stunning capture with beautiful light, detail, and composition ~ I want to be there! Belated congrats on your award Andreas...
