Hi Graham,

It's been a while since I commented on one of your 'scapes, but this one 
strikes me even more than most.  When I first saw it I imagined those two 
horizontal wedges of fields that kind of split off from the middle in the 
background as being propeller blades in a gigantic fan that is blowing, not 
only the clouds off the screen toward the upper right, but also the shadows 
of the sheep toward the lower left.  I think this fantasy view of it is 
aided by the unusual tones, probably from the orange filter.

I think this is my personal favorite of yours, at least in recent memory.
