    Photography, of course. Reading, I like a good sci-fi novel. Other than that it's a good drama on the telly or a good film.

  1. 2 sales ( of the same picture ) for $490 gross, my highest monthly figure in my short time here. Views only half of what I've been getting recently and only the 1 zoom. Could be better, but in the current situation, could have been a lot worse. So...happy(ish).
  2. Problem solved. Got back to have another look at the tree and it's European Larch (larix decidua). There are no white lines on the underside of the needles.
  3. I have this picture up as cones from a Japanese Larch (larix kaempferi) but I'm beginning to doubt myself now. The reasons I put it up as Japanese Larch was the way the mature cone seemed to be more open than on a European Larch and that the new branch in the background has a more reddish/orange colour to the bark rather than yellow. The tree itself was growing in a mature bit of woodland by the roadside and was a good 30-40 feet high. I've been meaning to get back and have another look at it (especially the needles) but haven't had time. So if anyone can give me an answer one way or the other I'd be very grateful. Thanks, Brian.
  4. Thanks folks for taking the time to answer my question but I've just figured out it's my own stupid fault. I set up a new pseudonym in AIM and moved pictures from an older one into it as it was a more relevant title, not realising that any views or zooms for the original pseudonym would no longer count, hence the reduction in numbers. Sorry for wasting your time and thanks again. Brian.
  5. Hi. Just wondering if anyone else has noticed their reported views for the rolling year being less than they expected today. Yesterday I had 4524 views and 41 zooms. Today I have 4118 views and 40 zooms. I'm used to the figures reducing at the start of every month as an old month drops out, and it happened at the start of April, but this is the first time it's reduced twice in the space of 7 days. It's not greatly significant in the grand scheme of things, it just seems unusual. Happened to anybody else? Thanks, Brian.
  6. Found this nest lying on the ground of a woodland path, obviously having fallen from a tree. Just fascinated that the enterprising wee birdie that built it has used strands of blue plastic in its construction. I'd heard stories of other birds using all sorts of things to build with, but it's the first time I've actually seen it myself.
  7. The sun went in a few minutes later and he left, so no worries.
  8. My word, Paulette, steady on. You'll be making the poor man blush. He's British, don't you know. 🙂
  9. Had just finished taking a shot of some early spring flowers and was packing up my camera when I turned round and found this chap staring back at me. Probably not the best picture I've ever taken but it made me smile. Plus it's probably as close as I am ever, EVER, going to get to taking a selfie!
  10. Thanks Steve. As you say my portfolio is quite specialised but, after the activity on it from the last couple of weeks, to suddenly get 2 blank days in a row seems odd. Last time I had a blank day was way back in March 2019 when I only had 320 pictures up for sale. Since then ( and even through the quiet Christmas period ) I've been getting a minimum of 4 or 5 views a day. I've even had a quick look through AoA and found a couple of search tems that should have returned a possible view. Whether my pictures would have come up is, of course, debatable, but, like I say, they've been getting well looked at over the past couple of weeks. I'll leave it till Monday as Steve suggests and if there still hasn't been any movement I'll get in touch with Alamy. Thanks.
  11. Hi folks. Just wondering if this has happened to anyone recently. I check how many views/zooms I get for my pictures daily and so far this year it's been really good - 630 views in total, an average of 12 a day. And yet, for the past 2 days my account hasn't collected any data at all. Now, I accept this is quite possible, but I do find it highly unlikely. So do I leave it until after the weekend break or do I get in touch with Alamy to see if there's a problem with my account? Thanks in advance, Brian.
  12. Hi John. The first two pictures I initially thought were Betony (stachys officinalis) but can't be 100% sure. You may have to take it as a starting point for further investigation. The last picture is Hare's-foot Clover or simply Hare's-foot (trifolium arvense). Hope that's helpful. Brian.
  13. 2 sales for $78 gross and 1 zoom - all in the first week. Got me really excited for the rest of the month. Then - silence.... Just hope I haven't peaked too soon.
  14. 2019 was my first full calendar year with Alamy having only joined in the summer of 2018, so was surprised and pleased to get my first sale in April. By the end of the year I'd had 12 sales for $419 gross (an average of about $35 per sale), so can't complain - yet! Come the end of 2020.... well we'll see what happens.
  15. Thought I'd have a go at this and was pleasantly surprised by the result. Views (1/1 - 31/10) = 3474 Sales (1/1 - 31/10) = 12 So 3474/12 = 289 How this compares to the big guns here who get a lot of sales I have no idea but i'm quite happy with that figure. I must be doing something right!
