Stumbled upon these units a couple of years ago in Horseshoe Bend, ID. The lighting was craptastic so I didn't even bother to pull out my camera. Got a few lousy iPhone shots instead.

The screener likely saw the two poles that he cloned out. But they were so minor in the original that I didn't even notice them until I did an A-B comparison.
