The Palouse, a New Season
I went out of my way last fall to visit here after seeing many spectacular images that were taken in this area. ( To see how this place looked last fall when I first visited, click here, and here ) I am kind of doing the same thing this spring while on my way to Alaska.
As always, click on any image for a larger, sharper version, and please be sure to do so, the detail in some of these shots shouldn’t be missed.
Viewed from Steptoe Butte, there probably are few places on Earth more beautiful than the undulating hills of the Palouse, when, for about 20 – 30 minutes each morning, the sun rises, the shadows slowly roll across the farmland, and the colors come to life.
Not too much need for dialog here, this is a very special place. I actually got going a little too late this morning to catch the best of the light, I’ll do better tomorrow.
Patterns and texture. Quite the change of pace after shooting birds at Malheur for the last couple of weeks.
