Palouse wheat fields

Harry (Apex, NC, United States) on 29 August 2014 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I attended a location photo workshop held by Tony Sweet in the Palouse region of the state of Washington. This area is at the southeastern corner of Washington, right against Idaho and only a bit north of Oregon. This area is second only to the Ukraine as a wheat-growing area. We were there in the middle of the harvest season.

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

Wonderful strong lines. I can see why this was chosen as a location for a workshop.

I like the veins of color adding dimension to the rolling field. Beautiful color too. It's an appealing image. Well dne.
