Legend has it that this monument was built by an ancient civilization of women, called the 'Clogs'. Researchers believe these monuments represent their holiest of Gods. No one yet understands why many of the Gods are identical, but in different colors.

Not everyone comes across secret wonders of the world such as this. You were obviously granted the serendipitous good fortune of photographing this amazing monument to The Clog, which you have recorded with the deft and artistry of a National Geographic photographer. Could I have that little flower number in a size 7 Bill?

Bill. its times like this I realize you're more than just a pretty face. Great shot, composition, and a fantastic title. Reminds me of a couple of things for the Ladies: 1) How does a man keep his youth? By giving her money, furs and diamonds. and 2) How do you keep your husband from reading your email? Just rename the folder "instruction manuals". Very well done, Bill - Allan

five???? five of your pictures are finalists...not surprising, as your images are top-notch, Bill.

If I were judging the contest, this one would have received top honors. Very creative, great colors, and most important of all, it brought a smile to my face. The story certainly added to the appeal, but the image by itself is a sure winner. My hands are clapping for this one!
