Copyright

06th September 2012
Yesterday I received a comment thanking me for removing the copyright mark from the front of the image. I did this in error! And from today , unless I make further errors the copyright mark will return. But I thought I should explain why I have started to do this. I have posted a picture everyday for three years now,both on this site and on Facebook and for the most part I did not use a copyright mark . I was often advised to use a mark but felt it diminished the idea of sharing, just a little. I consider it a compliment when people like an image enough to share it further , however it no longer feels like a compliment if people are passing the pictures off as their own , without any credit back to the author. The copyright mark takes care of this issue.
I spend a lot of time, a lot of money and also a little skill creating all these images, and I do believe in " credit where credit is due"
I can only take credit for the photography of course, I cannot take credit for the fantastic beauty that I am privileged to see all around County Mayo, that credit belongs somewhere else.........
