20ft from the road is a bit close IMHO, if I were driving at night and had a bright flashing object flying about in my vision, I'd be a bit cheesed off. Wouldn't throw stuff, but Doubletap is right on this one, if said person then made a claim that he'd damaged his car due to being distracted, or reported your flying as a problem and causing a distraction, then you'd be in line for criticism I think. Would you go stand 20ft from a road and shine a flashlight in the face of oncoming vehicles? Thats pretty much how it would seem to the drivers, they don't care that its "convenient for you" or that it might be safe, in control, whatever. They just know there's a bunch of light putting them off.

I agree there's nothing terribly wrong with what you're doing, but why put your head above the parapet if you have an alternative? Last thing you want is the landowner getting complaints, and you being "chucked off" the field. I assume you have permission from the landowner?
