Thats actually really cool lookin'. Wondering why they are spaced so far apart though. On a side note, rural Australia looks way more beautiful then rural America. They do look similar, but at least they have mountains and other features that distinguish the landscape, rather than endless golden fields on flat land with no trees, hills, or lakes.
