Can I draw it, post it on the internet and eventually sell it?
I've taken pictures myself of this place, that i´ve drawn, but wanted to make two more. Found this pic but is rather clueless if it´s ok under this license.

I believe you can use the photos on wikimedia as long as you credit the photographer...
Cheers,
Sharon

Can´t find who it is. It doesn´t say, what I can see.

Next to "Author" it says "Arkland" - that's the name you credit...
Cheers,

just be careful, the license also says "share alike", which means that you didn't pay to use the photo, so you need to make your derivative use of the photo also available under the same license.

In other words you can't use it in an artwork for sale :-\
