On January 10, I posted another shot of a hunters' seat, but it was too icy to climb into it. This time I went up the ladder and right inside.
Wow, that's so neat. :) I've never seen a hunter's seat before.

@e.: Thank you, e. It was quite a climb up in a high wind.
20 Feb 2008 5:45am
@Nick Passantino: Many thanks, Nick.
i remember the seat. Good job! Lovely angle.
@Rags: Thank you, Rags.
i can't say anything WOOOW GREAT

@Bleak GardeN: Many thanks.
A very nice shot ; your light is well balanced here, despite of the uneasy framing (backlight)
20 Feb 2008 6:10am
@Calusarus: Good analysis. You are right. It is a balance. Thank you, Calusarus.
very nice shot with different composition . Excellent

@Saeed: Thank you, Saeed.
yes i remember.This is an interesting angle,one of exploring the hunter's seat.i like the light shining into the enclosed area.:)
20 Feb 2008 7:03am
@tyan: Yes, it was backlit. Thank you, Tyan.
Great shot! They have these in Germany and I was always fasinated by them. Mind you, I never saw the inside until now - so thank you!
20 Feb 2008 7:18am
@martie: Thanks, Martie. They are fun to climb into.
lorsque je me balade dans les campagnes je rencontre souvent ce genre de cabanes en bois perchées dans les arbres ! de chouettes postes d'observations !
20 Feb 2008 7:19am
@Inés: Merci, Inés. Je suis heureux que vous connaissiez ces cabanes d'observation bien.
Like the mouth of a great wooden monster!
20 Feb 2008 8:36am
@Daroru: A bit like that. Excellent comment. Thank you.
What’s the prey
How high are these things
As you would know by now I am not familiar with these seats
20 Feb 2008 9:18am
@dpm: They are about 4 meters off the ground. Hunters shoot at deer, rabbit and wild boar. Thank you, dpm.
We have these wooden hunters' cabins over here as well. When I pass them I always think about the animals being watched and shot. I feel sorry for them.
20 Feb 2008 10:18am
@givethemhell: I agree with you. It is cruel. Thank you.
Thank you Michael you have answered a question for me, I have seen these structures on my travels and always wondered what they were used for. A great angle to this shot, I really like the way it creates the illusion that the door is too big for the opening.
20 Feb 2008 10:35am
@MaryB: An excellent observation. Thank you, Mary.
Looks like a very comfy perch Cool shot!!
20 Feb 2008 11:41am
@Craiger: I guess more comfy than sitting on the ground. Thanks, Craiger.
(I hoped you'd give us a shot of the local castle!!!)
20 Feb 2008 11:49am
@Japanalia: That shot is January 5 in my portfolio. Thanks, Gabriela.
Beautiful.I used to play in these as a kid.
@chris chisu: Excellent memories. Thanks, Chris.
This is an interesting shot! I like the back ground a lot
20 Feb 2008 12:19pm
@Ian: Many thanks, Ian.
wow... pretty interesting shot; great grain on the wood...
20 Feb 2008 12:30pm
@timothy sullivan: Many thanks, Tim.
Love the way the light is illuminating the far side of the image.
20 Feb 2008 12:49pm
@Ron: Thank you, Ron.
Very interesting angle. The more I look at it, the more I see the "construction of it," including the overall size of the door in relation to the door opening.
20 Feb 2008 1:06pm
@Steven: The door certainly appears bigger than the opening, doesn't it? Thank you, Steven.
I like the angle you took it from! I like the whole image. Great shot!
20 Feb 2008 1:10pm
@Elle: Thank you, Elle. I was on my way up the ladder when I took it.
Very interesting composition and also seeing how it's built. Also nice is the fact that there are no graffities or other types of vandalism.
20 Feb 2008 1:25pm
@vu@granby - Wolfgang Prigge: I think it is too remote for graffiti. And the vandals would be too lazy to hike up there. Thank you, Wolfgang.
Did you go in?
20 Feb 2008 1:26pm
@alla: I did. Sat around for a few minutes looking around then left. It feels like a treehouse. Thanks, Alla.
Interesting; very elaborate setup for hunters. Is there a wide-screen tv inside? Laughing...
20 Feb 2008 1:34pm
@Viewfinder: Only regular TV. Usually they just sit in there quietly with their guns and wait Thanks, VF.
Yes! I remember the previous post. Like the angle you took this one, very nice.
20 Feb 2008 1:54pm
@Ina: Thank you, Ina.
What wonderful shapes and structure, I love how you took it ;)
20 Feb 2008 2:16pm
@Lorraine: I was on my way up the ladder. Good fun. Thanks, Lorraine.
Despite the back light, you were able to capture the detail in the shadows. Well done!
20 Feb 2008 3:24pm
@Tracey: I tried to get as much shadow detail as possible. It was a compromise. Thank you, Tracey.
Like the colour and texture in the wood, nice
20 Feb 2008 3:48pm
@Peter Miller: Thank you, Peter.
nice image - I like the colors of the wood
20 Feb 2008 4:00pm
@yiannis krikis: Thank you, Yiannis. Weathered wood is always interesting.

20 Feb 2008 4:10pm

@Richard_Irwin: Thank you, Richard.
Looks like a deluxe deer stand.
20 Feb 2008 8:45pm
@Earnest: Not a bad description. Thank you, Earnest
hunters seat!?!?! i thought they used it for bird watching or maybe taking some pictures, its much more fun.
20 Feb 2008 10:04pm
@pedro alexandre: I agree. I guess the hunters think shooting small animals is fun. Thank you, Pedro.
I like all the different colors of the wood. Nice composition too.
20 Feb 2008 11:00pm
@Frankie: Thank you, Frankie.
I took a same shots! For one thing, another thing
We have the same ideas! I love it!
20 Feb 2008 11:07pm
@Porcsin: Thank you. We shoot what is in the area.
It would make a good photo-blind to photograph wild life. Nice one, Michael.
21 Feb 2008 1:59am
@Michael Rawluk: I agree. Thank you, Michael.
Great angle on the shot, well done!
21 Feb 2008 4:54am
