A Goodbye to Sonja Loner

A Goodbye to our comunity member Sonja Loner.

I have no words - just this image to say goodbye. My heart is with her family.
Her comments on my images have always been an inspiration to continue posting.
Her magnificent birding images have been an inspiration for me to start birding.
On many occasions she advised me on equipment etc.
Although we never actually met, she has become a friend.
The news of her passing away came to me as a shock.
I hope her images will stay here forever...

(übersetzt mit Google Translate - sorry für Fehler ...)
Ich habe keine Worte - nur dieses Bild, um sich zu verabschieden. Mein Herz geht an die Familie.
Ihre Kommentare zu meinen Bildern waren schon immer eine Inspiration. Ihre prächtigen Vogelbeobachtungsbilder waren eine Inspiration für mich, um auch mit Vogelfotografie zu beginnen.
Obwohl wir uns nie getroffen haben, ist sie ein Freund geworden.
Die Nachricht von ihr Vergehen kam zu mir als Schock.
Ich hoffe, dass ihre Bilder für immer hier bleiben werden ...

Auf Wiedersehen, Sonja.
