Stolen Wave and Forth Bridge

This is one of my photos that has been stolen and used with an image of the Forth Bridge (probably also stolen) by a guy from FreakingNews. In FreakingNews he is called "johnx1" and he has posted there:

 

"My email and phone are going mental with orders for prints from all over the world and I just got a request to use the image from a science fiction mag who want it on the cover of their next issue."

 

Here is my photo:

I have written to him, but he has not replied, so if you know him, he's from Rosyth, Kingdom of Fife, Scotland, and describes himself as a "joiner carpenter, artist and writer", let me know please. If you see this image turn up on a magazine or you have anything to do with FreakingNews and can help, I'd be grateful.

 

Please feel free to fave or comment on this image, the more of you that do will mean the more people will get to see it and I have a better chance of nailing this thieving SOB.

 

I have not given him or anyone else permission to use my photo in any way.

 

Nine times out of ten I give permission for people to use my photos for non-commercial purposes for free, but this guy is just taking the Pee-One-Fifty-Five!
