Like your humor with photography mixed in.

Now what is this a benchmark of?

Interesting angle shot and the light to dark and depth of field all rolled up into one.

Tim, there are benchmarks thruout the USA as part of the land survey process by the US Geologic Survey.

This one happens to be in Iowa. More commonly, they are seen on mountain tops.

ViZnquest, this benchmark is located off a way trail in a state park in Iowa.

Yes, I was trying to capture the late afternoon light as it played upper left to lower right (in pic). I like that the benchmark was almost obscured by leaves.

Thanks for noticing the subtleties, ViZnquest :-)

AAHHH hmm my vocab isn't that large.

I thought benchmark as in : "my computer has 3150 points... how fast is yours?" benchmark. This clears everthing up. Nice items to collect photos of.

In Australia they used to be called 'Trig (for trigonometry) Points' -- don't know if they're still used or if GPS has outmoded them.
