What a beautiful area we all had a chance to photograph, the light literally changes by the minute as the sun rises and sets. We actually spent a sunrise and a sunset on Steptoe Butte, a National Park that consists of a winding road up the Butte that leads to the top and provides a 360 degree view of the Palouse. Once named Le Pelouse by French-Canadian explorers, the tall grass that once covered the landscape is now gone but today the Palouse Hills are recognized as Washington’s most fertile agricultural region, in The Palouse Wheat is King.

The fun part about shooting these rolling hills, they area is so immense and the light changes so often all the shots you see are all a bit unique from one another.

    You’re knocking it out of the park with the Palouse images Mike. Beautiful.
