Palouse Day Two

During our trip we stayed in Moscow ID.  This great old barn was just outside of town so we got to shoot it in a variety of light.  I think this morning was one of my favorites.

All Roads Lead to Jerome


This little church is located right in the middle of Jerome, VA, but I’m getting ahead of myself.   I was hiking on Sunday in the National Forest and I usually have my IR Converted D200 with me when I hike.  After finishing my hike I decided to do a little back road scouting and came upon this church.  Years ago my family had a small house in the Shenandoah Valley and it seemed like we always would see road signs pointing to Jerome.  I don’t think I ever followed those signs, but I’m glad I did this past weekend.

Palouse Day One

I just returned home from a week in The Palouse with my tour partner Denise Silva and 5 of our friends.   The Palouse is located in south eastern Washington.   It is easily the most beautiful farming country I have ever seen.  We had a great but grueling week.   We drove over 1800 miles during 8 days, but traveling in a Cadillac Escalade made the journey quite enjoyable. 

I spent a good part of yesterday evening downloading and cataloging images from my recent trip to The Palouse.  My cataloging process starts with importing the images into Lightroom and adding keywords and geotaging.   After ingesting over 5000 images, I started the long process of reviewing and editing.   The image above is a favorite from the first evening.

The Pink Panorama

I just arrived home after spending a week in the Palouse region of Washington.   This spring has been pretty much nonstop photography and I have been loving every minute of it!   One of my problems has been staying current on image processing.   It seems that some photographers are really proficient at processing and posting while still  on the road or very soon after returning home.  I fall into the second category where I work with my images sometimes weeks, months or years after a shoot. 

In the spirit of much delayed image posting, here is a panorama I shot at the Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum 2 years ago.  I will be leading  photo tours of the Asylum in July and September. Please call the Asylum to register if you’re interested in attending.
