The Palouse, located just south of Spokane is a rich farming area of some 3,000 square miles. After I retired, I had a list of places I wanted to photograph. The Palouse was at the top of the list. Since 2008, I have been to the Palouse at least five times. I am attracted to the rolling, asymmetrical hills, and the ever-changing colors from season to season. I also love the smoothly-flowing wheat fields, and the way the light changes, creating very unusual shadows. It is truly one of the most beautiful places in Washington.
