Mike, your's is an amazing image and I thought for sure you were going to win it. Is the contest officially over?
If it isn't over and you do win, I think M44 is a good suggestion, so we can use that as February's target no matter the outcome.

LOL, ok now you win by one point David. When I posted results were showing and I had it by one vote. I thought if the results were visible voting was over.
