The photo contest theme for August is "Optics".... (with a twist)

This is an optics site hosted by SWFA. I'm looking for a picture of a rifle scope, binos, range finder, spotter, etc ... in the field, at the range or where ever. The photo must show the manufacturer (or model) of the optic, the snap shot doesn't have to be overwhelmed with the branding, just so someone is able to identify it.

Example:


Good luck!!!  Thumbs Up

Thanks for asking. I had trouble sizing the original photo that I wanted to post - once I futzed around and got the size right, the screen resolution was pretty poor once it was posted. So, I went with another shot.

m00n, commonly for contests we only permit one post with an image. Which of the pictures would you like to use for your entry?

Thanks, after the suggestions here, I reposted the original shot that I had trouble getting sized right.  I also deleted the link to one that was "quoted" so it doesn't show anymore.  I guess, technically, I posted two photos so I'd be fine with accepting a DQ here as far as the contest goes..

No, no, no, your fine. I post the polls and didn't want to mistakenly post two images or the undesired image to be voted upon.
