I took this one a few days ago but not really sure if I like it that much yet. Even though I got some nice setting sunlight on the rolling hills, I think the sky is too uninteresting considering the amount of frame it is taking up.

I think maybe shot at night under a small amount of moonlight lighting up the spinning blades with the stars trailing across the sky might make this particular view more interesting.

Jerry-astro, the photo details you asked about in the previous weekly thread - I can't read the EXIF fully anymore and I think from memory it was around a 10 minute single exposure at f/2.5 ISO 400 with the Canon 50mm 1.8 II. Some high thin cloud had drifted across and made the brighter stars of the Southern Cross itself appeared bigger as the light scattered through the thin cloud.

(You can see the same effect happening in this time lapse near the start at 10 seconds)

Thanks for that. A really interesting effect.

I really love this image... the colors are definitely in the realm of the magical (to use a rather hackneyed, but in this case, very appropriate term). What catches my eye is both the contrast between the warm tones of the earth and the cooler tone of the clouds along with the way the reddish clouds complement the earth tones in your foreground.

Probably too darn many words on my part... to summarize: I like it a lot!
