I wondered the same thing when I got the email from them and asked.


Either their photo editor or the writer of the article used Google (and/or 
other search engines) looking for White River State Park photographs.  The 
lady I talked to mentioned my name and my photographs from my web site (and 
elsewhere) kept showing up at the top of the list.  They went to my web 
site and emailed me from there.

All the requests for my photographs have resulted from approximately the 
same the first time I've been contacted about photo usage in that 
manner.  My work is not in any stock agency and I don't advertise anything 
. . . just a modest web site with my galleries and email address.  Don't 
ask me to explain why my name and some of the subject material I have on my 
site bubbles to the top of Google.  I don't know; it just does!  Google 
very carefully guards the algorithms they use to determine what floats up 
to the top to prevent people from doing things deliberately to ensure their 
stuff floats upward.
