I came across this Land Rover that had attempted to cross the Verde River at Sheep's Crossing in Arizona. I guess after mastering the wilds of the shopping malls in Scottsdale, he decided he was ready for some real adventures!

Wonder what the call to the insurance company will be like...

the Insurance adustable is the saleperson of the landho dealership and the swimdriver! I wish I can see the the landho more to bad the landho is too dark!

LOVE it! But isn't it a RANGE Rover, which is much more expensive and environmentally guilty than the Land Rover? Perhaps Mother Nature wished to assert herself here. In any case, glad to hear no Range Rovers were harmed during the making of this picture... or am I? Very clever, very pertinent and a dynamic composition to boot!

Each time I see this it bring out another chuckle. Of course, sad, but funny! Congratulations on your top ten.

I've been there too, a brand new Ford Eplorer, only 400 miles and it didn't swim very good either.
11/30/2006 07:58:26 PM
Very funny shot! I don't care much for the uneven border, though.
11/30/2006 05:20:11 PM
Oh my. What some people won't do for a good photo.
11/30/2006 02:16:42 PM
I know that the blue ribbon is important, but was it really neccessary to drown your car?!? Nice shot by the way, my regards to your wallet.
11/30/2006 10:53:11 AM
Heh, Heh!!!!
11/30/2006 12:46:17 AM
No Way! I hope you didn't do that to your car just for a picture to enter in a contest that doesn't pay you any money to replace it!
11/29/2006 10:59:24 PM
oh no!
11/29/2006 08:41:19 PM
Yikes, hope this isn't your car!
11/29/2006 05:16:06 PM
Wish the creek/river were a little lighter. :)Fun photo. (Hope they had insurance...braaahahaha!)

If there was an award for "shot that best met the challenge," this would have to be it! That's hilarious (although less so for the owner, I'm sure!)
11/29/2006 09:29:09 AM
Oh my!
11/29/2006 03:58:59 AM
LOL! That's GREAT!! I have a land rover :D
11/29/2006 02:03:21 AM
