A little Google Earth picture test - what is the pic of???

Along the lines of goodgroupers post about Google Earth:

Below is a picture from Google Earth. Can you tell me what the 3 objects indicated by arrows are??? I believe the pic is from about 8000-10000 feet elevation with some slight cropping. I'll post the pic with the objects identified shortly.

Interested to hear the responses you get on this one!!

By the way get ahold of me, we need to talk 7mm barrels.

That middle object looks a little thin on top to me!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: A little Google Earth picture test - what is the pic of???

I cheated. I downloaded the picture and blew it up. Looks like a person on the right and a person on the left. To the left edge and right edge are some bullet backstops. Thing in the center is a run over possum.

Hmmm, Looks like your typical low organic matter Washington dirt.

On the far right is a cinder cone or some such thing that makes a good back stop.

Given the convenient field road and your laziness (just gettin' back at cha for being mean on the other thread [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]) and guessing some distances (if I had the Lat/Lon of the pic I could tell you distances to the foot)

So I'd guess its you walking to the 100 yd back stop (if it were 200 you'd be driving [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]).

The object on the left is a rig with the tail gate down and Hmmm is that a an Ithaca 12ga slug gun [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Pretty neat timing of the pic, huh! You never know when Big Bro. is watching. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

Very interesting.

Screech has two objects right, but out of order. That, coupled with what Kirby said, should help you out a lot. Oh yeah, Kirby has seen this picture before. That should help.

You've got that right. You'll see what I mean when I post the pic with details.
