Rural landscapes: the windy sunset


The sunset was looking to be quite photogenic, so instead of going straight home from work, I detoured into the rolling prairies just north of where I live. This scene looked very good, but oh man, when I got out of the van, the wind was so crazy that it was all I could do to set up the tripod and make five or six exposures. Even with the tripod, some of the compositions were blurry. Fortunately, this one came out just fine.
