The Palouse region of Southeastern Washington State is among the most breathtaking landscape locations in the lower 48 states.  This year a combination of factors has changed the overall appearance.  A long snowy winter that did not let up until well into spring and falling wheat prices has led to the farmers decision to not plant about 40% of the fields.  The result?  Lots of the images that show endless folds of lush green fields now show a patchwork of brown and green and the green is behind the usual growth rate and in some cases looks thin compared to this time of the year’s usual appearance.  Still this is a beautiful place and we had lots of opportunities to capture the beauty.  It has been non-stop so I apologize for not posting sooner, but here are some of my favorites!
