Well, it is close to what I had envisioned while driving by at 65 mph. While driving over the next mile, I wrestled with either turning around or trying the following afternoon as the sun was close to dipping behind the hills to the left. I decided to not be lazy and shoot while I was still out and about. Unfortunately, the power lines I had always thought I could somehow exclude with from a low angle were not cooperating. I will have to scout around next time and see what can be done. So close to perfect, but still not.
