Rolling Hills of Palouse by terenceleezy

Ran into Chip Phillips here running a workshop that morning. As usual, this is one of those places that’s not close to anywhere on the map, probably made famous by Chip Phillips sets of ridiculous good images from here. Google it, you will be wowed. It’s not on the way to anywhere but if you do go though, stop by Palouse Falls, it’s great. By the way, I don’t mean stop by, I probably meant take a 1 or 2 hours detour from the state park. :p

Green Dream by JohanEickmeyer

Notice of alteration. The little road behind the tree has been removed in one section. I felt it always detracted from the artful composition of an otherwise great scene. It’s not something I would usually do, but if done, I will disclose the changes.

Let me know what you think! I am still not quite sure if this image has been framed the best way or not, so I would appreciate feedback if possible.

Thanks for looking!

Sea of Green by JohanEickmeyer

View this image on black for a better view of the tones. 🙂

The cool thing about shooting on Steptoe Butte in the Palouse region is that there is always some unique composition to be found even though countless photos have been taken there. The secret is to use a long telephoto lens to narrow the view down to something that works best. I had found this shot earlier in the day and waited around for hours in the same spot to finally get the light color, softness, and direction I needed. I’ve also been working on some new processing techniques in my mad scientist laboratory, which I applied to this shot. Hope you like it!

Thanks for looking!
