Palouse Study #2
I visited the Palouse last spring during a college-shopping trip; that was my first chance to photograph this grain and lentil-growing region. Then I tended to photograph in a more abstract way, which I have a habit of doing. This year I decided to try to get a better landscape view and in fact I never changed my 17-55mm lens the entire time I was there, which is really rare for me because I love my zoom lens. I struggled with the larger view though. Over the course of the day I decided that a higher vantage point looking down was better, but I don't entirely object to a flatter view like the one photographed here. There was certainly no shortage of rolling hills, shades of green, and puffy clouds for me to practice on!
