    This one was also taken on my visit with family last weekend. It was one of those things where you see it and know you just have to pull off to the side of the road and grab the camera and tripod. C&C always welcome. I really appreciate it. Thanks. :)

    Nicely done. Is that HDR? Makes me long for the Great Plains.

    Where was this taken?

    I like the simple composition of this shot, but the sky looks highly unnatural to me; particularly the lighter colour near the horizon and around the windmill. Was the light really like that or is it an effect caused by post-processing?

    That shot is really amazing. Colors are perfect and grab my attention. I can't stop scrolling back up to look at it.

    Thanks everyone for the great replies!

    Neal: Thanks. This was taken in the back roads of beautiful western wisconsin where I often visit relatives.

    Thanks so much Empress!

    Thank you Corinna for the wonderfully kind words. That really means a lot to me. :D

    Yes, the light in this photo was as close to what I saw with my own eyes. I used HDR in this case to replicate as much as possible what I actually saw, which really took my breath away. My daughter was with me and was equally amazed by the way the light played on the clouds like that. Thanks for commenting.

    I am very grateful for your comments, NateS. I say it often because I really mean it. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a nice reply.

    Nominated for POTM. Any picture that I come back to about a dozen times to look at again is surely worthy of a nomination.
