    I am working on a book about backyard homesteading that includes a section on beekeeping. We’d like to consider one of your photos for the book, “wrappedbeehives.jpg”. Would it be available in hi-res (300 dpi).

    We would happily credit the photo to Brookfield Farm.

    Any interest?

    • Hi Dave – Thank you for your interest in a photo from my blog. Yes, you can use any photo on the blog as long as it’s credited. I’d prefer a credit to Karen E. Bean, Brookfield Farm (or just Karen E. Bean, if the rest is just too long). I can get you the image in 300 dpi, as long as you don’t need larger than 8X10 (which I bet you don’t), my bee yard camera doesn’t do RAW, so I’m locked into Cannon’s ppi and jpg, but 300 dpi images come out great.
      Wonderful to hear that you’re writing a book on backyard homesteading that includes beekeeping – keep me on your “let us know when you publish list”.
      Karen
