As I have said a hundred times, the Palouse is America’s Tuscany. While it doesn’t have the beautiful cities and villages that Tuscany has it does have some magnificent rolling hills that transform with the seasons. The harvest is still my favorite time of year. I do plan to do a June visit in 2016 and capture the Palouse when it is green. For now this is a pano shot made from the top of a small hill.
The Palouse is one of my favorite places to photograph. If you are a regular to my blog you know I have many images made there. I love the harvest time which usually takes place in early August. This past year it was very dry and the harvest came very early. The Palouse suffered a very hot summer and thus it was dry and dusty. This image show the harvest and the dry dusty wind.
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.
