If I wasn't such a baby, I would have stood out here all night and driven all over farm country to get a better photo. But it was windchill of -5. Probably. And it was too dark for my camera to focus.
I did have the advantage of my giant trash-bucket car, though, because I actually had my tripod in the back seat.
Just because I'm me, I'll feel better if I admit what's wrong with this shot. Here are the things that make this unviable as a cover photo:
1) ISO way too high=grainy
2) there was probably a better vantage point somewhere, but I almost got my 2 wheel drive car stuck getting to this point, so I wasn't feeling brave
3) It's a little soft on the focus
There. I just needed to say those things. I was thinking that it would be great cover potential, but alas, I was too cold and hungry to stick it out.
