Andy that is a great stock shot because it has so many possible buyers. The ship and the estate building compliment each other. The ship stands out from the hills in the background against the water because of the high shooting angle. The building has the verticals corrected because of the vantage point and the telephoto lens. Tourism weather, it never rains in Ireland. Possible sales to the owners of the ship, Irish travel, the estate itself, general architecture, general cruising, history. Lots of potential.

Thanks Bill, didn't think of it that way!  All that was on my mind was being knackered after climbing a gajillion steps to get the damn pic 🤣

St Fagans Castle and grounds. When all else fails on a weekend, I can always head to St Fagans and get something.

Sure, everyone's got one of these, and I haven't had a zoom on Venice this year, but who cares, Venice is great.

Red-footed Falcon with prey. Some hot days in the photo hide but well worth it...

Andy, these days if they don't have a lift I stay on at ground level. Here's one of the many very good buskers I've heard here in Galway:

Must agree with your sentiment. Spent a great week there with my wife and daughter back in the early 90's. Actually we were on a two week break, the other week being spent around Riva del Garda and trips into the mountains.

Al Portego, we've been going here for 20 years so we can even find it now.
If you want to save a few bob an ombra house wine is only 1€. It's not too bad.

I note that Alamy has made full use of copy space.😂

The cats and an older photo that I had to rework, part of a series on a shop that repaired church and cathedral clocks in Nicaragua.

To share or not to share the good stuff.  Maude and Belle both want the canned food.

Enjoyed a trip to Yorkshire at the beginning of the month. I know there are thousands of bird pics on Alamy, but I thought I'd add a few more!
