Thank you David, you're absolutely right. The critical point here is
par settings of fields::image.plot not the axis(1,at=?...) as could be
understood from the original partial question.
I forgot to cc the list on my private communications with the OP.
Future googlers, the same solution can be achieved with
A<- matrix(1:50,nr=10)
par(mar=c(5.1,2.1,4.1,4.1))
image(t(A),axes=F,col='transparent')
axis(1,at=seq(0,1,l=ncol(A)),labels=LETTERS[1:ncol(A)])
require(fields)
image.plot(t(A),add=T,legend.mar=3.1)
Cheers
