    Your photos are unbelievably beautiful! I'm so glad I found your site; I will be a frequent visitor and have subscribed to your feed. I'm wondering if you sell your images. There are several I would love to frame (with proper credit to you, of course)and wonder how I could go about doing that. Do you have a price sheet or do you otherwise grant approval for copying with credit? Thanks so much.

    Hi Deborah,

    Thank you so much for your kind words. For the time being, I am not charging for the images, as long as they are not used commercially. I only ask to give proper credit, and to forward basic information on what images are being reproduced, and for what purpose, using my private email:, so I can keep track of my portfolio.

    Take care,
