When you do the sort of “good enough” research I do for this site, it is hard to figure out exactly what they grow in Palouse.  There is the Wikipedia answer, which mentions wheat and legumes, mostly lentils.  But they seem to grow more just by looking at the colors, and when you try going beyond Wikipedia […]

Gosh my posting schedule is erratic, and I’m sure there’s nothing you care to read about less. This is a more detailed view of the Palouse farmland from Steptoe Butte, in which you can see not only the natural flowing contours of the land but the lines – guided by those same contours – added by […]

It was a very long day. We woke somewhere around 3am to drive to this location and shoot by the dawn’s light. We then shot other locations through the morning before breaking for lunch and a nap, and eventually returning to the same spot for sunset.  By this time we were done and just hanging out.* […]

I;m not sure why this image looks so painterly. It is a simple film shot taken with the same gear used in yesterday’s rather crisp, clear image. The other notable feature of the image is that I took several similar shots in the same location with digital cameras, and they all either overexposed the sky […]

The region known as the Palouse got its name from French-Canadian explorers who named it Le Pelouse, the “Grassland” Now the grass is gone, having been replaced by agricultural grains and legumes, mostly wheat and lentils. Every photographer who visits the area makes the drive up Steptoe Butte, rising approximately 1,000 feet over the surrounding […]

View Full SizeIn My Galleries Here I just returned from the 2015 nXnw Expedition, in which a group my photographer friends from all over the country get together in a gorgeous location and shoot photographs non-stop for 4-5 days, in between very little sleep, lots of coffer, and the occasional beer. It’s called nXnw no matter […]
