wow, I like this hill! (and could include the farm too!)
great effect with the differet colored layers, and love the strong dark colors of the sky, suppose after this shot there was some rain?

this is one of those photos kind of "unique", you were really lucky to see this moment and have your camera, and we´re happy you had "the eye", this is really GREAT. Su, Portugal #131484

Andrew B. Coupe May 26, 2019

Thanks everyone for the kind words.

Su, you're right this was a kind of unique moment - I pass this farm every time I drive into the office and it's never looked quite like this before or since. I do make a point of carrying my camera (almost) everywhere, just in case there's a situation like this. #131517
