Congrats on the Yellow, I really loved the rolling hills of the pasture. Had this one picked for the blue.

Wow, what an interesting affect, almost like a painting! I like the limited colour palette - that bright blue, that vivid green, lots of white and then a little dark green, black and yellow to finish.
