You're very welcome to link to any HTML document on this website, and you don't need to ask permission to do this.   However, you must not link directly to any photo (JPEG), because I end up paying for the bandwidth and don't get any benefit or credit.

The photos on this website are licensed for individual, private, non-commercial use only as computer wallpaper.   You may not download a photo for any other use.   If you want to use any photo on this website, including the wallpaper photos, in a publication such as a book, magazine or website then please use the stock photo order form.   If you want to buy a print of any photo you've seen on this website then use the print order form

It's illegal to sell any photo on this website, or to distribute any photo from this website for free.

I regularly use my ISP's website statistics package to determine who is linking to my website.   If I find that you've linked to a JPEG, or that you're using a photo without asking permission, I will take action.   This might include contacting your ISP to get your home page or website taken down, or other actions which are faster and at least as unpleasant.   In case you're wondering, here's an article describing the rights of a copyright owner against an infringing website.

All photographs on the website are registered periodically with the US government Copyright Office, which provides certain legal protections if copyright is infringed, including allowing me to claim court costs when I take violators to court.
