My Trip to the Palouse

January 15, 20122 Comments


Palouse MorningI’m just getting around to looking at some of the places I was fortunate enough to visit in 2011 and the great photography opportunities that happened as a result.  This photo of the Palouse, in Eastern Washington really stands out for me.

A couple of my photography friends from L.A.  (Linda I’Anson, Scott Stulberg and Holly Kehrt) met me in the small town of Colfax, Washington where we set up our base.  By the way, check out their web sites, they are all very accomplished photographers (, and  We wandered the numerous paved and unpaved roads that cross the countryside looking for barns, old farm equipment and of course, the great rolling fields that the Palouse is known for.

On this particular day, we left the hotel before dawn in hopes of a sunrise shot of the fields of the Palouse from Steptoe Butte.  As you can see from the photo we were greeted with low hanging clouds, but we made the best of the situation and I think we all came back with some great shots.  There is so much to photograph in the Palouse, it’s almost hard not to get a few great shots.  Just an amazing landscape!

I highly recommend a visit to the Palouse in the late Spring when the fields are green, or in the Fall when everything is being harvested.  You won’t regret it.

I processed this in Lightroom and Photoshop using Nik Color Efex.

    Absolutely mesmerizing.
    I can’t stop gazing at the image. It really pulls me in and lulls me to a very relaxed state if mind.

    The gorgeous colors are so reminiscent of a favorite Monet painting.

    This is simply breathtaking. I’m going with you on your next trip!!!
