I like this Annapolis Rock, Appalachian Trail image, J.B. I never did get to that area of the Country, so it's nice to see something like this.

You set the horizon high in what looks to be an otherwise uninteresting sky, and having to block the sun. So that is skillful. Good photograph.

Ah, is that your cat, Sid? Cats are such fun and photogenic. It appears to be a male. And he has an "Assassin's Kitten" look about him!

We'll eagerly look forward to some more photos of yours!

No one ever comes to see me. I used to live 20 mins from Morley and we've never met, TNLP was out this way for a couple of weeks and he didn't come see me.

Oh well, I'll just be the loneliest, never had a CPS meet-up CPS guy.

No, but I would have, if I had known him then. Made this image back in 1999, long before joining the CPS gang here.
