My wife picked this location. Unfortunately, it was a fairly easy challenge for me but may have been difficult for others. Here is a shot of the "playing field"



The designated area extended from the fence (barely visible) on the left to the asphalt path on the right and from the four-legged high-voltage tower in the background of this shot to a similar one a short distance behind me. There were numerous subjects to photograph here, mostly in the form of wildflowers and creatures. The grass had been cut a couple days ago and that made things more difficult.

Here is what I think is the best shot out of about 30 that I took. I've never seen one of these spiders before and to catch it having lunch was a bonus. This is the only shot that is cropped.

Amazing shot of that spider! I have no idea what it is either. Beautiful capture.

Great work. I like the idea of the towers marching off into the distance.

Great one. I also really like the 'frayed cable' from your gallery.
