Taken just off a rural road, a windmill with mustard plants and dormant vines

I really like this one for all of the contrasting colors. The mustard green/yellow, grey windmill, dark trees, rusted vine supports, beautiful blue sky. The only thing that bugs me is the overhanging limbs in the upper right hand corner, could just be me though. Nice new avatar pic also, self portrait?

You are right GoCubs, I missed the branch in the corner. Yes this is me a new self portrait. I recently lost most of my sight to cataracts,and had to have new lenses implanted in my eyes to restore my vision. So, now I don't need to wear glasses any longer,hence a new picture, sans spectacles. Thanks for your comments.

I really love the patterns that vineyards make, and I love mustard as long as it's in someone elses pasture or field. I like this and agree with cubs about the branch. Nicely done.

CONGRATULATIONS on your new lease on life, Kanji! How exciting!! Your whole world must be a different place now. Your photographic vision certainly wasn't hurt by the cataracts!!

Thanks so much for you kind words. Yes things are nice and sharp now. Thank goodness for the medical advances. Sorry I took so long to respond. Maybe I will make a new avatar,my wife sez I look too serious.

No, don't change it. There is this hint of a smile there that lets you know there is whole other side than what the viewer sees.
