This is just another image from a very large series of images I have of the Palouse that I photographed in June. As I have mentioned in previous posts the sky is so dramatic in the Palouse. I love the weather in the big sky and work hard to find cool images when I see it coming.
One of the things that are special about the Palouse is what I call the big sky. The sky is part of the Palouse and many times actually becomes the focus of the image. Whether the skies are blue with puffy clouds or dark and gray with an approaching storm, they are always special.

I discovered a new place in April of 2016 while running a workshop with Art Wolfe and Ignacio Palacios. In northern Chile on the border with Bolivia, there is a region of great beauty called the Atacama. It’s got some incredible landscapes and great skies. We photographed both in Chile and Bolivia, sometimes at altitudes of 16,000 feet. This is one from the series of images I made. More to come.
I always like this image. I have been going through my files of the last few years prepping images for an online store. It’s a good exercise and every photographer should do it. This is one from one og=f my Italy trips. It tells its own story. Lonely trees, big field and giant sky with magnificent clouds. Shot with a long lens from a distance only makes it stand out even more.
I travel many places as you probably know. I am always amazed how the sky looks so much bigger out west. Why is that? Here’s proof. Shot in Monument Valley. We were shooting for a while with beautiful blue skies. This is notwhat a photographer wants, we want nice puffy clouds. Then within ten minutes this cloud shows up. Our Indian guides said the called up the cloud god just for us. Is there such a god? The guides took credit for the clouds and I’ll take credit for this photo.
