The Palouse, the now so world famous part of south-eastern Washington and eastern Idaho, is a treasure-trove of landscapes for the artist. I could spend a month there at once and not get bored…if I could take a month to do it!
Here are a couple from a trip that’s part of our history book. In the first one I was attracted to the character of the tree among the fields. The flowers added a bit of spice and I didn’t even mind the human element of the distant telephone pole.
With the next one, it was all about a simple landscape. I’m also seeing this as an interesting conversion to black and white.
As the day progressed the heavens were becoming more adorned with cumulus clouds. I had a lot of fun with this scene as I watched the rapidly metamorphosing clouds. And I’m quite pleased with the way the “coffee” toning worked on this.
