      Briliant picture! We will use it in our Reisefuehrer (Travel Guide) - We plan to launch the page in January 2012, where we will share our travel experiences of the wonderful country in German language.

      Thanks for CC licence.

      Thank you as well. We used it with a story on IHN virus in farmed salmon in Washington state.
