  1. That's right. This type of bridge is also called a bascule bridge. The upper arms carry a counterbalance weight at the back. There are two other original Thomas Telford bridges nearby which now only carry foot traffic and which are manually operated. Here's one which is not far from the road bridge, the Wrenbury Church bridge - taken on the same day and also a victim of the Sky Replacement Tool.... 🙂 When I first did this one I noticed that the the upper counterbalance arms were tainted with a hint of blue from the sky replacement tool. So I duplicated the background layer the
  2. Thanks Betty. Incidentally, talking of great jobs, the lifting bridge is still the original bridge built by the great engineer Thomas Telford around the year 1790 though now, as it's on a main road, it has a modern electrical lifting mechanism. Over 200 years and still in use.
  3. Taken a couple of weeks ago on a dull overcast day. Sky added (Photoshop) then I flipped the image vertically and added the same sky image again to create the reflection. I tried adding a few extra ripples using the Flood Filter plug-in from Flaming Pear but in the end decided it was better without them. A few tweaks and job done. The Llangollen canal at Wrenbury, Cheshire.
  4. This was the reply to an email I sent when I applied for Archival/Reportage access back in Nov 2019...... "Smaller versions will be suffice (sic) when sending them as examples in your application."
  5. Very slow first half of the month then things picked up - finished with 16 sales for $443.84 gross.
  6. Interestingly, I clicked the 'go for it' option yesterday and this morning I had two sales drop in marked with 'License Upgrade'. I don't think I've seen that before. $120 total. The title of the book was given for one and the name of the publisher for the other. If this is the infringement team at work then I'm all for it!
  7. I can't advise on Live News but check the caption and keywords on image 2CBYF1H - you probably still had it selected by mistake when captioning other images.

  9. Just to clarify - the proposals apply to England and Wales only. There is no law of trespass in Scotland and, as far as I'm aware, there are no plans to change that. https://www.thebmc.co.uk/law-of-trespass-could-change
  10. Ha - mere nine years! This dropped in today, uploaded in 2004 and first time sold. Personal Use, then the rest of the details were in German but not a distro sale so presumably directly off the German website. Low $$. The Hochwilde Hut reflected in a small mountain tarn, Ötztal Alps, Austria. Taken in 1981 on good 'ole Kodachrome.
  11. Is this a US/Canada thing only? No mention of it on the Alamy website when viewed from the UK (at least I can't find anything) and I notice only US/Canada contact numbers given.
  12. Just spotted one of mine in the Guardian - DKMNT6 - the Cuillin mountains, from Sligachan, Isle of Skye, Scotland. Also on that page - FA8NYE - The National Trust Photolibrary - View to the Mourne Mountains from Murlough National Nature Reserve, County Down, Northern Ireland. https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2021/apr/19/my-alternative-summer-five-writers-plans-for-an-epic-uk-adventure
  13. Those traditional boats for transporting the wine barrels are called Rabelo boats - https://www.introducingporto.com/rabelo-boat
  14. According to the Post Office 'Postcode Finder' the name is listed as one word - Eastcotehouse. Also here (no other details though) - https://www.houser.co.uk/eastcotehouse,-church-lane,-dogmersfield,-hook-rg27-8tb-p5423394
