Just a reminder of the rules, and the way things work, as I understand them...

Winner posts a new picture, waits 24 hours...

After the 24 hours, he/she counts the number of captions, if the sum is less than ten, he/she waits another 24...

After ten captions or NO LATER THAN 48 hours, the winner of the last round declares the winner of the current round - whatever caption strikes him/her as funniest: he/she also picks a second and third place (more on that below)

The winner of the round has 24 hours to post another picture to be captioned; if no picture within the 24 hours, (or notice posted by the winner that he/she is looking...) then second place is up, who also has 24 hours...

During breaks in the action, (between a winner being declared and the next picture posted) general discussion may take place... Moderators should be aware that a picture posting may cross with a "general discussion" type posting.

That said, I'm looking!

Judgement day Ahem, Judging time!

Honorable mention goes to N9JFE, the only one who got the location correct: this is a shot of Lebec, CA, which is on the Grapevine, (the pass between California's Central Valley and the ¿glories? of ¿sunny? Southern California, for the non-Californians out there…) taken January 2013.

THIRD PLACE goes to Michael Belanger for:
"The Geocache is right.....about.....*there* (points to the top of the hill); let's go get the First-to-Find!"
for, at least, thinking outside the box...

SECOND PLACE goes to Celt Tooth for:
"Ah the mountains of Saskatchewan Canada."
I thought Saskattchewan was flat... but the location given is far from the actual location...

FIRST PLACE and next pic goes to Rob Smith for:
"Doctor, are you sure we've arrived on Hawaii in June?"
which tickled my funny bone - Hawaii is just as unlikely to have snow as the Grapevine... (unless you're talking Mauna Loa, which does get snow...)

PM on the way...

I don't mind second place at all. I think a good contest
this time around.
Well done Rob.
