Located at an old Lucent Technologies site (now a county park) right next to a main road, this is a testing ground for different preservative treatments and coatings for telephone poles. Many of these samples have been there for years or even decades. See akthejefe.blogspot.com/2008/10/pole-farm.html Will open in a new tab or window for more than you ever wanted to know about this local landmark.

I have been told that it is very common in the area for parents to tell their young children that this is a telephone pole farm, and that the poles that are planted there will grow up into full size poles.

I discovered that my camera will only stop down to f8.0, so the depth of field on this shot isn't anywhere as good as I had hoped. There wasn't a position far enough away with a decent view to get a better panorama.

    Wow, this would be a spectacular locality to shoot an anaglyph GigaPan. Real 3D depth of field!
