  14. Hello;

    I am a designer creating a website for an online educational resource. I came across your photograph ‘Foggy Forest’ and was wondering if I could use it as part of a graphic montage

    The photo will be subtly placed as a background image; not featured prominently. I would be more than happy to credit you on the site if permission is granted.

    Thank you!
