Thank you for your comments on Emory Gap Falls. This falls and DeBord falls are on the Panther Branch Trail which is in the Northern part of the park. It's past the campground. The trail head is at the end of the road. It's a wonderful hike and much easier than hiking to Frozen Head!

Thank you Mr. Caedes! I'm glad that you took the time to leave that nice comment on my images. I appreciate your support and value your opinion. I also want to thank you for providing us with this wonderful website to share our images and make friends with people all over the world. The job is System Administration and I don't think that will get any better. The health was a knee replacement and that's improving everyday. Thanks for your concern.

Loved those words of wisdom on the latest "Praetor Maximus Editorial - 03/06"...Sad, but true about "Otherwise lost in deviantArt" (or the dA)...without Caedes, we could easily find our works buried within Animae rips, BDSM enshrinment, fetish art, skin peeps, death, goth, gore, gangsta art, goofy .gif animation, crash & burn flash presentations, and countless illustrations of "weird debauchery" ("But Ma, I don't have any homework tonight!")...I'm glad you've created this site...Thank you! -Ron

Just wanted to say how much I've enjoyed this site since I've joined, which was quite a while ago (in 02 shortly after it was created apparently :P)! I've never really been all too active till recently but for the past 4 years I've enjoyed the images that your site allows me to have the privelage and joy of viewing. Since I've discovered this site I don't believe I've had a wall paper on my desktop that I didn't pull from, and it's one of the few wallpaper sites that is genuinely dedicated to the appreciation of art, and free to boot! Another great thing is that gov't computers/networks don't block this site, which works great for armed services members like myself. Well anyways, I figure since I am being more active now, and part of the caedes cadre and all, I thought it appropriate to finally say thank you for this awesome social playground. It's been a pleasure Caedes, and will be for quite a while ;) Have a great day!

"Heaven and Earth last forever. The reason that Heaven and Earth are able to last forever is because the do not give birth to themselves. Therefore they are always alive. Hence, the sage puts herself last and is first. She is outside herself and therefore her self lasts. Is it not through her selflessness that she is able to perfect herself?" - Chapter 7, Tao Te Ching, Lao Tzu

Very addictive website this and much graciousness on exhibit (no pun) by the addictees.
Surely you have had help along the way from some dedicated devotees.
By the way, I find your icon a bit fearsome. Did you ever consider changing it?
Why have you not posted any submissions in awhile?

P.S. Somewhere on this site, I read that caedes is not a real account, but a placeholder. If so, who submitted the art work under this name?

Good to hear from you on "Farm-back-yard animals" -- They lined themselves up that way really, so it was a natural comp. I am learning to use the middle focal lengths of my telephoto zoom better though, so I'm glad this one turned out well. I'm glad you liked it, thanks again for your thoughtful comment!

Thank you kind sir for your comments about “The Old Shed”. I wouldn’t say fog always improves an image but it does provide some wonderful artistic opportunities. I’ve always enjoyed wondering around in fog, perhaps because it’s quite a rare event here but mainly because of the surreal look it gives to ordinary scenes.

I've really made some great friends on here, even internationally which is real cool!! Its great to meet people from literally all over the world on one website. It's also peaked my interest in photography and I am upgrading my camera to a more professional type because of it. Thanks again for all you've done here! ~Dan

Hey Caedes,

I just had a problem on the sight. I was wondering if you might be able to help me out.

I was asked by you to comment on a picture called, "Buddah", and I did so. I put my comment down, and let them know that I liked the color, the focus, the composition, and the placement. But I also said that I didn't like the subject matter because I was a Christian. I was very careful not to be offensive, in fact I made sure to say I was not attacking anyone, just being honest. I was as friendly as possible, and I even said that if they had any questions or complaints, that they could PM me and I would be happy to answer any questions they might have.

Imagine my distress when I came to the sight today to find an abrasive, rude message from a character named "Savage" saying that he had responed to my "intolerant" comments, and that he was happy my comment had been deleted. I was flabbergasted! I checked, and indeed, my comment had been deleted, and not only that, but there was an unhappy message from Savage in its place. I was hurt, and very sad when I saw it. I had not been contacted by the poster of the picture to say that they were offended or angered by my comment, and I had not even been given the opportunity to explain myself or show that I had been asked to comment on the picture by the site!

I just wanted to bring this to your attention. Not to insult you, or to show you that I am angry. I'm not, just hurt. I only wanted to let you know so that you might be able to rectify the situation, so that it might not happen again.

I hope you have a good day. I hope all is well in your life, and I am praying for you.

I am a little bit new on your side, but it is time to say Thank You. In a way, your webpage already changed my life. I only took from time to time a photo with my husbands camera - most of the time a photo of my husband. Sometimes I also did some shots with my mobile phone. Since I am here, I have got a camera and I spend a lot of time, walking through Vienna, my hometown, and look for shots. The community here is very kind and funny. So your project is a hit and I am sure, that your life will be one of sucess.

I love this site very much but object strongly to the way your moderators handle rejecting images. I have had two images rejected recently and have received the standard, and in my opinion patronising, rejection message. This message tells me nothing about why my image was really rejected. Wouldn't it be better if the moderator actually told the photographer why it was rejected?
