River Orwell and the Wet Dock, Ipswich

River Orwell view to urban redevelopment in the Wet Dock, Ipswich, Suffolk, England, UK

JGH9Y5

The foreground shows hard engineering solutions to urban river management with flood defence walls and a lined channel to reduce friction and increase discharge. In the background is the former port area of the Wet Dock which had become deindustrialised by the mid 1990s – much later than many other ports. The Wet Dock itself constructed in the 1840s but the port location dates back to the Anglo-Saxons.

Right in the centre, with the checkered design, is the waterfront building of University of Suffolk. The tall building to the left shows apartments rising above Dance East studios. Vacant land and derelict buildings suggest that much is likely change from this viewpoint over the coming years.

Find the person wearing a red top walking along the left bank – an important detail in the image.

A prehistoric kitchen at Drombeg

‘Fulacht fiadh’ water trough and fireplace building at Drombeg stone circle, County Cork, Ireland.

This photo shows what is essentially a Bronze Age kitchen no doubt used to feed those attending ceremonies at the adjacent stone circle.

Excavation in 1959-60 revealed a horseshoe-shaped drystone enclosing bank, a central slab-lined cooking pit, U-shaped hearth and well with a stone-lined overflow drainage channel ( this last item is not visible in the photo below as it runs behind the far wall).J2TX3J

Bronze Age site of Grimspound, Dartmoor

Grimspound is a late Bronze Age site high up on on Dartmoor in Devon, England. The ruins of 24 circular stone huts are surrounded by a low stone wall. The site was named in the eighteenth century and its name is probably related to the Anglo-Saxon god of war, Grim ( also known as Woden, or Odin). Several ruins of stone buildings are shown in the photo along with the enclosure wall.

This was licensed yesterday for editorial use though unfortunately the details are vague.

Rendlesham UFO

This is my most recently licensed image at Alamy. It was taken earlier in 2018 at the site of the site of the supposed  Rendlesham UFO incident in 1980.

My web is now functioning properly and I have moved the domain hosting to a company in UK – I am so pleased to be free from Yahoo.

Web site back up

Still no word from Yahoo but at least my site is back up and running thanks to the intervention of Tucows. I have emailed Yahoo, posted on their Community ‘Help’ site, and actually sent a letter to California by snail mail. I’m staggered by their negligent attitude and am going to push to be able to transfer my domain hosting somewhere else where I can be treated as a human!

Rant over. I have added three new galleries from some of my newer images. Ones of my globe, the new Hauser and Wirth art gallery at Bruton, and some images of Bowood House stately home.

Web site down

Apologies to anybody who has been trying to access http://www.geographyphotos.com

It has been suspended by Yahoo because my domain registration details needed to be updated and the email address listed no longer exists. This meant that I could not and cannot log in to Yahoo Small Business. And because I can’t log in I can’t access what they call ‘Customer Care’. I have had my domain with them since 2003 but haven’t subscribed to their Small Business service since 2005 or so.

They list a US phone number but I have been warned about long wait times and that more likely than not I will just get a recorded message referring me back to the Yahoo Small Business website where I can’t log in.

I am hoping that Tucows will provide help since Yahoo has been unresponsive but have heard nothing as yet.

In the meantime this should work https://geogphotos.photoshelter.com

 

Front Cover – German crime fiction novel

I happened on this front cover use yesterday when browsing Google Books. The photo is of a breakwater at St Peter Port, Guernsey, Channel Islands. I remember feeling a little annoyed with the person for daring to walk into my photo but obviously his presence is key to the use. Below are my two alternatives that I have – a vertical and a horizontal  which has been cropped to form a vertical. It looks as though I was struck on that red life saving ring!   Interesting to see how the image has been built into the whole design of the cover. It was licensed through Agefotostock.
