Congratulations indeed, but please note that the correct spelling is "sepulchre" the Alamy search engine doesn't check for misspellings and you will miss searches.

 

Except that Americans (who as all Brits know cannot spell) do in fact spell 'sepulchre' as 'sepulcher'

That's a heck of a spider. Well spotted.

Hmm, notwithstanding our US cousins' inability to spell, the "Church of the Holy Sepulchre" is a proper noun. Spelling "Russell" (referring to me) as "russel" is simply wrong and would result in inaccurate search results on Alamy.

He has both spellings in the keywords. I usually remember to do it with "mediaeval". Not so often with "colour"- rather a common word.

I note with dismay- and alarm- that there are many more search hits for the misspelling of both those words. In the case of "medieval", ten times as many. Some work for me today.

Pretty ordinary photo when compared to Wim's beautiful flowers.

Win takes some great pictures, but this isn't a beauty contest/camera club competition! What counts here is saleability (which wim also has nailed)! 

Well done on your sale.

I don’t think anyone really uses uses ‘mediaeval’ much these days, even in the UK. I’m not going to bother adding it, or ‘Middle Ages’. However I do use both archaeology and archeology.

No, it's the other way around. I've just added "medieval" to quite a few images which had only "mediaeval" , which is the correct spelling in my book. I wouldn't dream of using anything else, expect here, for Americans. OED has them as alternatives.

Edit: AoA agrees with you, unfortunately. Perhaps I'll save myself some typing in future.
