As I recall, Jeff's pictures are proprietary. Jeff shares his terrific
photos for us to see and enjoy, not for re-use for any reason without
permission. I'm not suggesting anyone would knowingly take advantage of his
generosity, nonetheless, I recommend that one contact Jeff to see what his
terms might be.
