OP, when challenged on your first photo, you produce a second. Without resolution on the second, you produce a third, and without resolution on that, a fourth.

When will you get to a point of discussing any with some form of resolution?

There is a simple test for verifying shadow orientations in photographs with a single small-angle light source, like the sun on the lunar surface. Draw a straight line through each object and the shadow it casts, and those lines will all run through the shadow of the camera. (If the camera's shadow is in the picture, of course.)

It's best to do these with small pointy artificial objects some distance above the surface, like the tips of gnomons, rakes and the like where there's less confusion in the object/shadow pairings. It can be tricky with things like rocks and boulders sitting on the surface unless they have very distinctive features.

He won't discuss anything, he is an avid follower of expattafy1, he posts on youtube under the name of K. Chris Caldwell and trolling is all he is capable of.

A search on his name turns up a lot of conspiracy nonsense, including some very anti-semitic stuff. He also seems to have Flickr account with nothing but stock photos on it...

I'd say he's a somewhat disturbed person with an anti-authoritarian axe to grind, and unlikely to actually debate any of the claims he makes.

Looking at all his picture which he presents as “evidence”, all of it is pretty easily explained. He seems have classic case of HowDoShadowsWorkAgainItus. Pretty common among conspiracy theorists.
