3 days from acceptance of an image to first sale

posted on 25th of july, 2011

This was something of a record for me.

Having only a (very!) small portfolio I was quite accepting the 'fact' that an image would need at least a month after being accepted before it would be download.

This image blew that rule away. Accepted on the 22nd and downloaded on the 25th.

Alondra21: Lago Enol, one of the lakes of Covadonga, is in Asturias in northern Spain, close to the village of Covadonga which gives them their name. Well worth a visit of you are in the area, although during many days in summer you are not allowed to drive up to the lakes due to limited parking and must stop before the village and take a bus.

About me

I have been taking photographs for many years. I started out with black and white film and a wet darkroom, and whilst I do miss that now I can also see the advantages of converting to digital. I believe that over those years the standard of my photography has improved which is why I have decided to begin submitting images to Dreamstime. I have many images which I am confident will be of the required standard, but I also have plenty of ideas for new images to create and/or find.
