  1. Hi Kimberley,
    My name is Tom. I am a graphic artist/typesetter. The publication I am working on is for Thomas Nelson Publishers.
    It is a Bible Illustrated Dictionary, so it takes biblical words, people or ideas and defines the meanings and gives the references where they are found in the Holy Scriptures.
    The Broom Bush is one of those entries and is associated with the Prophet Elijah in 1 Samuel.
    Your photo (top most one) seems to be a perfect example of that bush/tree as found in Israel. Could you confirm how you know that is a retama_raetam tree? I have seen different versions with that name.
    And if so. . .
    Would you consider giving Thomas Nelson license to reuse that photo in their Dictionary with your byline.
    If so, what would be your fee and how would I obtain the hi-res version for printing.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  2. Hi Tom. I’d be happy to give permission to reuse the photo. To the best of my knowledge it is a broom tree. I took the picture while visiting Israel in November 2013. No fee, although I’d love a copy of the book when it’s completed. đŸ™‚
    For my byline, could you link to my personal website http://www.kimberleypayne.com
