This is slightly off topic (or a lot off topic), but does anyone know where to get Cargo #s for 2021? I'm curious about that.

I have the Macbook air with the M1 chip, and its honestly very impressive for a machine of its size and portability. It might struggle in lightroom at times with lots of edits, and bulk exporting is going to be slower, but in general I think its a very good machine for traveling.

v15-1 and v26-1 really stand out to me. Think you'll have to do some work, especially on the former, to reduce some blurriness, but they're very nice pictures. The ground photos look like they're suffering from some heat haze, which I don't think is very fixable. Nice shots overall for sure. Thanks...
