File:Safrron stigmas crocus sativa.JPG[edit]

Dear Velella,

The picture you have uploaded as Safrron stigmas is for sure not of a Crocus sativus.
I guess that it is of a Crocus cancellatus, another species which is cultivated for their corms, which are eaten by some populations of Asia Minor. But I am not sure... it could also be of a form of Crocus speciosus, another species of Asia Minor, which is cultivated for its beautiful flowers.
Could you please let me know the location where you have taken this picture, so that I can confirm that it is Crocus cancellatus?

Thanks for this picture. In the Coracle article an IP has been changing the names of the people seen in this picture. Do you remember who they were, and if so could you add that information to the image description? I have reverted the IP in any case. Richard Keatinge (talk) 08:07, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

I regret that I have no idea of the names of the people in the photograph but I guess some of the residents of Cenarth might well be able to recall their names. If I can find a reliable source I will amend the description here on Commons. Velella (talk) 15:27, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

Great Orme[edit]

Hi Velella - I'm just checking whether it would be ok to use your nice pic of the Great Orme in a book that I am having published next year. I will of course acknowledge your contribution in the book.

Yours Sincerely,

Kia ora Velella

My name is Apanui Skipper and I am creating a traditional Māori weather poster for educational purposes. I have been collating Ngāi Tahu traditional weather forecasting to help improve and revitalise their understanding of how their ancestors predicted local weather. I am nearly finished but I am having a bit of difficulty sourcing excellent photos for some of these weather indicators. I have seen one in particular that I think will suit my poster. Hence the reason why I would like to request permission to use your photo re: Kōwhai Flowers. Your support to ensure that this poster is a success would be much appreciated. I will also acknowledge you as well as the photographer. Ngā mihi Apanui Skipper —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 10:56, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

Hi Apanui, you are of course free to use the photograph . Acknowledgement of Wikimedia commons and of me as photographer would be welcome. Hope your poster is a success. Velella (talk) 12:38, 10 April 2017 (UTC)
