How could I not dedicate this to our special agents SAM & SAAB (Marzena.) They have been gone on a clandestine assignment for quite some time. Let's hope SAAB returns and turns the snow yellow around all the poles and fence posts.

I can remember when I turned Captain Clone loose on all electrical poles and lines to enhance the photo. That was the way it was done back in the day. Now I am using them for a contest. Go figure!

I like how the fence and the horizon seem to have a rendezvous planned on the left. Perhaps SAM & SAAB will be meeting us there as well. If not, let's have a barn dance for all agents. Till then, SOT over and out......

1) Tick, even when the winter will last, it will be a hectic job for SAAB, lol.

2) SAM and SAAB will appreciate this dedication. My estimate is that it will be not that long after we can see their come back.

3) Very apt entry for the contest Owd Fella. Good luck with it!

when to clone, and not to clone, this is one not too! Tick, It sounds to me like SAAB has a big job ahead of him when he returns.Lol! This is a good contest entry, and you have such a way with the English language. You made me chuckle! tigz =^..^=

Funny how times have changed. I am not as quick to clone out wires anymore, but these have a distinct purpose in your picture. I love the way the poles seem to head on into eternity...but if I try to count them, me owd eyeballs go buggy! Excellent winter shot, and contest entry, Tick. Good luck.

My eyes are not as good as they were but I still managed to read "this is my contest entry" Tick. When one has learned morse code in the young days and used it often one doesn't forget it easily. Lovely shot and a good entry for the contest.

i cant help but to think if one was to take a chain saw & cut the first one just right, would they all fall like dominos? that got me thinking about food, so i ordered a pizza. i seem to have got my wires crossed here & all train of thought has vanished...huummm pretty effective picture.

I think you are right SAAB would love running round these post and SAM would not have to worry if he went missing as she could use are skills in tracking him down in the snow . You made this a interesting photo with your story and the detail and depth of field is superb in this capture .Plus very nice compstion and stunning natural colours too.

Tick - Pole-land is a powerful image. ;-) Excellent use of open space of the snow-covered field and blue sky.

It's sunny and beautiful, but I bet it's cold, Tick. I am sure Marzena will love it. Good luck, my friend.

Good vanishing point selection Tick - good luck in the contest. Nice snowy photo - do You have that much show in Missouri? (When I read Your title I thought this was going to be a shot of a club with girls on poles!)
