Believe it or not, every single image on this website was taken by and is copyrighted by Patrick Lydon. He is a really open guy when it comes to sharing images, they are here to be enjoyed, distributed, etc. That’s why they contain no ugly, distracting watermarks.
Although it can be fun and rewarding, it’s actually a good deal of work traveling, spending entire days with exclusive purpose of taking photographs and then staying up till 5am editing and writing about said photographs. Especially since I do have a day job to tend to when I’m not doing photography things.
Rather than rattle off legal ramifications of stealing copyrighted work though, I’d just ask that you have the courtesy to respect the time I’ve put into this website by notifying me if you intend to use any content from the site, images or otherwise.
Besides, it usually brightens my day anyway to know people are enjoying and sharing the images
