First off, thanks to every one who commented and commiserated, some anonymously on my stolen photograph. Much good advice and help was also offered so let me update those of you who stopped by:
FASTAds emailed to me, given the intervention of a helpful fellow blogger and told me, that they got the photograph from another website, and didn't know it was mine, and that they are sorry. Okay, good on them to do that much.
Now I hope FASTAds got a release from www.srilankaexpeditions.com to use my photograph -- if they didn't, they still do violate the principle involved and if they did -- then however did Sri Lanka Expeditions use a photograph of mine with out permission or even citation. Yes, but its up there -- and I haven't heard any thing from the owners of that site. (I have now, and its been cited. See the apology below in the comments section)
Then, making it all the amazing was a post this morning from N -- showing me that yet another tourism website (goofy foot holidays) was using my picture, with out acknowledgement of course! How many more are out there? I can not even track this! Jeez.
Okay guys, its time to acknowledge the source of the photograph.
