Did you press shift at the same time?

😮thanks for that, never come across it before, and I thought I was pretty good on my legacy ctrl-shift-windows and stuff. Great time-saver.

In Safari right-click works in the image manager with the image enlarged. Then I can copy the image address and "insert image from URL".

Exactly how I do it, Paulette. I probably followed your instructions back when I was asking how-to! 😊

I am chuffed!! 7 sales dropped in on the 1st for an Australian newspaper. $$

 

All bar 1 are from Arnhem Land, a vast remote and rugged Aboriginal wilderness in Northern Territory, notoriously difficult to get permits to visit and camp. One usually has to book for months in advance. Then it's hundred of kms of very rough roads with heavy corrugation, not all vehicles can make it.

 

Thing is, we were there during the first Covid lockdown when State borders were closed. Northern Territory is not the most touristic place at the best of time, but there were next to zero tourists. Even Kakadu National Park was free. So it was very easy for us to get the permits and go to two separate areas.

 

I'm so chuffed that I'll make an exception to the rule of one pic a day, and post a few.

gvallee What a stroke of luck, to be able to explore Arnhemland whilst the borders were closed!  I always had the impression the region was closed to independent travellers; tour operators charge $$$$.  You certainly made the best of the opportunity.  Meanwhile visitors to Kakadu National Park are being deterred by reports of poor maintenance and arbitrary closures. (wanted to quote your original post here but the Forum structure seems too clunky).

Indeed Philip. Anyone can visit Arnhem Land if:

 

1. You have an adequate 4x4 vehicle (it's not a requirement, it's for your own benefit!). Believe me, you'll find severe corrugation, lots of it, for hundreds of kms. If you break down or get a flat tyre, there's no servo or anyone around to help. No telephone coverage either.

 

2. You apply for a series of permits: access permit, camping permits and alcohol permit. This bit is a nightmare and has normally to be done months in advance. I also applied for a drone permit.

 

Re. Kakadu, I don't blame people for hesitating going. We were at Gunlom, on the first day of re-opening after the lockdown. The ranger told us there would normally be 200 campers, we were 12. Thing is, the top of the waterfall was closed because during path maintenance work, workers deviated from its initial location and went through sacred aboriginal ground. Hence a dispute and the matter is now in court. That's Kakadu number 1 attraction, a real jewel, closed at the top. So we swam in the waterfall pool at the bottom. Next day, they sighted a croc there and closed the access totally. They tried to capture it for a number of weeks but failed. Other attractions are kilometres apart if you want to see something else but Yellow Waters Billabong which I recommend any time (especially the sunrise and/or the sunset cruise).

Thanks very much Genevieve, most interesting. If this pandemic thing continues much longer, I'll have to get myself a 4x4... We were in the Top End recently, but reliant on tour operators, which can be frustrating at the best of times.  It was the Gunlom shutdown which drew the attention of ABC TV's recent news feature, plus the unrest amongst aboriginal stakeholders.

Do it anyway. Off-road travel and camping is awesome. Far from the madding crowds. We've been on the road for almost two years now and had an incredible time. We're currently in FNQ and guess what, they 're having a late Wet! Raging waterfalls and torrential rain! Plenty of time to catch up on Alamy edits.

Surreal comes to mind for me. It looks like her shadow is upside-down. The shadow of the photographer, I assume. Unless she is a ghost.

High $ for presentation, newsletter, PowerPoint, etc.  First sale since February.   Was looking at a light tent on B&H today since most of what I'm  selling are still lifes.

This is one of the older images I uploaded just 2 1/2 weeks ago from 2009. Lower $$. But a quick sale. Also sold today, Sunday.

Lit up sign advising of bus schedules to and from Mt. Desert Island, Acadia National Park, Maine, USA.

I remember a few months ago someone on the forum asking if defocused images were ok to upload and if they sell...

Well this one just sold, albeit not for much.
