Waves of Grain

Or maybe a better title would be Rows of Grain.  One of the interesting things about the Palouse was the row patterns cut into some of the hills by the farming vehicles.  It's the same sort of pattern you see mowed into baseball fields. I know I've obscured it somewhat here with another panning shot, but it was really striking, especially in early April when the grain crops were just starting to grow.  I think it will completely disappear soon as the crops really take off. It came out really strong in this photo though, which was taken just a few minutes before sunset on April 6th.
