I have been playing wit this image for a while. This a shot of a ship that was wrecked or beached in Svalbard, Norway. It has all the things I like, decay and rust in a beautiful setting. I shot it at the angle I did to utilize the lines of the boat in the composition. This was made with a Nikon d*00e and a 24-70mm lens.

Where on earth can you find colors like these. The Palouse is like the color chip rack of a paint store. The is a classic example of the natural beauty in the Palouse during the harvest. Freshly plowed fields next to fields that have just been harvested. And, for a real treat you should see this place in the spring time.
In the Palouse as mentioned in previous posts there are a lot of abandoned trucks and cars, not to mention houses. This shot was made at the Texeco station where the owner collects old trucks. I loves the color, rust and especially the lines of the headlight and truck. So retro, so nice. Shot with a Fuji XT-1.
If there is one thing that is symbolic in the Palouse it is the Red Barn. I had fun shooting this barn as I was looking for something bit more abstract. I thought the red color and single window worked here.
While in the Palouse I have a favorite place I like to visit every time. It is an old Texaco Station that was moved to a location of a mechanic. He also has collected a large number of old trucks. You could spend several hours at this location shooting all there is on the property. This is a long lens shot I mad of the truck cabs.
The Palouse a small corner of Southeast Washington is a beautiful region that attracts photographers in the spring and during middle to late August. It has one of the richest soils in the country and it’s an area that is famous for growing wheat and other similar crops. I have visited the Palouse many times and it always provides me with a ton of new images a sit is a dynamic landscape, always changing. This is one of the more iconic pictures of the Palouse. A hillside, harvester and windmill. Shot with a Fuji XT-1.
