Mini Crab Cakes Au Gratin

Mini crab cakes au gratin from dinner at the Old Mill Restaurant in Strasburg, VA (Baltimore is less than 100 miles away from Strasburg)

Shenandoah Sunset Outside of Strasburg, VA

Sunset in the Shenandoah Valley. The mountains are the tops of the Appalachians and the field is the Cedar Creek Battlefield. I had to balance the tripod on top a sloping pole to get the slow exposure...OK, so maybe it was the 1/2 bottle of really good Virgina wine (yes, VA makes some darn good wines!)
