Default Mercury Sunset Pano

Experimenting with "pano" photos on the I phone. It gives an interesting view of today's sunset over the Mercury. Had a good drive last night to see how the "new" radiator handled cooling and it ran right on the centre of the gauge. No thermostats. Temp was only in the 70s though so we'll see what it does in the 80s one of these days.

At barely a thousand acres I'm just a hobby farmer here nowadays. Any more than that and I wouldn't have much time to play with old cars.

I know I talked about a calendar of Mercury photos last year but it never got beyond that stage. I guess there is hope for next year now.
Took a drone shot of a Mercury sunset last night.

Love the shot Roosty. What beautiful country, wide open spaces to loose yourself and no "rat race"...... only for me I like a few hills though as I go "nuts" and do a bit of mountain / trail running. Do that calendar!

Hi Everyone. Roosty, there is a difference between a picture an a piece of art to look at again and again and appreciate something new every time. You are doing just that. Thanks for the share! Dang I wanna drive up to your farm!

Thanks Graeme. We do have some winding up and down roads here but I have not been on them yet with the Merc. Its hard to show on a two dimensional screen though. Even the hills look relatively flat. Hope to get out and take a few pictures once it dries up here from the rain.
