You would think that those running a business would know better, and you would think that such a business trying to make the most of our wonderful scenery would think twice before taking someone else’s image and using it for commercial purposes, but a local business has taken this image of the Mourne Mountains and used it on their own web site, Twitter and Facebook. The business, Enjoy the Mournes, knows how to contact me, and yet still chose to take the image and use it without permission or attribution. I’ll leave it up to you what to think of such a practice.
I’ve just put up a new post at Day Trip Photo.
Sandra and I managed to escape for a few days down south and west. This was my first ever trip to Cornwall and the forecast wasn’t good! On the day of arrival the sky was overcast and dull with the occasional brief flurry of rain. The next day brightened up wonderfully and we were able to enjoy coastal walks and photography for the next few days. On the last evening of our trip the clouds and sun finally conspired to work together to produce an acceptable sunset. So, I stood, camera on tripod, just above Fistral Beach shooting the sunset. There are plenty more photographs over at Flickr, but here’s a sample to get you going…
I haven’t posted a Southport shot here in a while, so here goes! This one’s a minimal image with just marram, beach, sea and sky. I think this sort of shot is one of my all time favourites. I never tire of taking these photos, they are simple and easy to look at, the sort of images I’d like to hang on my wall.
