I'm pleased you have asked Richard and the answer is to stop usage without my consent.

This Bad News I have just read could mean that anyone out there will soon be able to claim an internet image and use it as they please. Well they can if they like but only if they want to have it with my username for all to see.

i've read about it Sam and find it unbelievable and there's not much you can do about it especially the ones already in your gallery.

It might look like a nice place for stroll as you have captured it, but that street sign bodes no good at all. That's quite a hill!!!

Nice Sam;-)doesn't it make a difference when the human element is included, i seem to remember these two knowing they would be shot but at least they didn't turn round to have a look. You caught these two just right,i think i was two secs too late.

I answered your query re-the cottage on my page, but yes,i have the original with a little more than you've shown here.

It's a lovely little place Derek and a very popular one with walkers and tourists. Not being able to see round the bend does add intrigue though in reality there isn't much of a story beyond what we see here other than the very steep hill indicated on the sign. Many thanks. .

I'm sure it will Ian, the fact is many, many images are already pilfered from sites like this in the knowledge that pursuance in the courts isn't usually something amateurs would enter into for cost and time reasons alone. To see copyright treated as is suggested by the Act will be seen as a green light for downloading without fear of action. Cheers,


Yes KC it is like that all around this area with 25% gradients being the norm. Those same hills though are what makes the place so interesting and that undulating landscape is why the place is also rife with waterfalls many of which adorn my collection :o). Many thanks !


I agree Neil, they couldn't have come at a better time or be more fitting to the scene to be honest with the exception of a farmer leading sheep through the scene. The reason I asked the question was because as you see from this the wider scene allows better placement of the main elements and allows a long narrow sweep of road rather than a hefty chunk up front which was necessary with the opting to do a square crop. Note also the tweaks made to the road surface to break up it's previously plain appearance.

Kind regards and best wishes to you all, Sam :o)
