Coldstream Surprise

Last Sunday I drove just over an hour to a small town named Coldstream.  There I joined a number of other blokes for a game of paintball.  It was part of a bucks day for a friend who'll soon be travelling with his fiance to Paris, France to get married.
On my way to Coldstream, while driving at 100 km/h, I noticed an unusual sight out of the corner of my eye in a paddock close to the road.  As soon as I saw it I thought "I'll have to check that out on my way home".  So on my return journey, as I drew close to the same location, I pulled over and had a look.
To some it might just look like a canvas tarpaulin covering some hay bales.  But on closer inspection, as I had noticed earlier, the colours and the font of the printed text proved familiar...
 .... as did the "Novem", the MGM logo and the giant "S" on the side.

Yep, that's right, it was a giant canvas billboard poster for "SkyFall" sitting in a paddock in almost rural Victoria.  So that's where those massive billboards finally end up !
