Since my first visit of the year earlier in April, I promised myself a return trip to The Palouse to capture more of the spring greens. This Memorial Day, I fulfilled that promise. Cindy, my friends, and I drove down first to Palouse Falls and then to Steptoe Butte. It was nice to take a break from the constant rain we’ve been having for the past week. While at the waterfall, we hiked down to its base, and I was able to capture a not-too-often photographed view. The image was take at mid-day, but I really liked the wide-angle perspective and the white puffy clouds in that sea of blue sky. I hope you agree.
We were also blessed with good light at The Palouse. The recent rain had minimized the atmospheric haze and the brilliant spring greens were breathtaking to behold. I tried to stray away from the “typical” shots and concentrated on creating some unique compositions. As the sun went down, the overhead clouds turned a nice shade of pink just before a downpour rushed towards us. All in all, this was a fine day!
