I don't think this will really do well. It's not exactly what I wanted, either. The clouds got thinner once I got lighting dialed in.
I was originally going to light another large scape object (larger than this, but not as tall) but that idea sorta fell through.

I was torn with leaving the light in the photo itself, but decided I sorta liked it there.
For a sense of scale, the light is sitting around 6 feet off the ground, and is about 60-80 feet from the generator itself. The "specks" are stars.

Hey, i see more than one light source!!! :D

Actually I wish the windmill was not there. I really love how the clouds look by being lit up from the moon.

I absolutely love that miniscule light under the massive monolith that makes up this image. Well composed.
