This is a composite of 11 separate shots. I didn't come up with the idea until a few days before the deadline. Driving to work I was trying to think of all the pictures I had taken during the qualifying period and how to use them in this challenge. It then hit me like a golf ball in the back of my head! My fallback is usually a stupid golf shot. From there it was just a matter of putting the puzzle pieces together. I am especially fond of the ground hog in the lower right corner. I had taken his picture for no particular reason earlier and had no plans that he would be used for any challenge. I had even forgotten that I took his picture until I looked through my collection. The hardest part was finding a blue sky to use since it has been raining here for 20 straight days. There was a single day when the sky broke through and I was taking a picture of a golf course for the owner. The picture of me was taken in my back yard after I had thought of the theme. The steer and the background were taken at the farm I visited for my entry in the "Horns" challenge.
