Palouse Day Eight



What a great trip we had  to The Palouse.  Eight days on the ground and covering over 1800 miles made for an epic photographic journey.  Best of all was sharing this with a great group of friends who are equally passionate in our pursuit of photographic art!  The photo above is of the iconic Dahmen Barn wheel fence in Uniontown, WA.    I shot this using an infra-red converted D200

Palouse Day Seven





On our seventh morning we were lucky enough to find this crop duster working a field.  We had seen these planes earlier in the week, but never so close to the road.  At times my 80-400mm lens was too much, especially when he would fly overhead.   It was amazing to watch as he never sprayed the road or us for that matter.   I think he made about a half dozen passes before moving on.  The hard part was choosing a favorite from the 170 images I took of this plane.

Palouse Day Six






Regular readers of my blog know that I love old cars and trucks.  The Palouse was a jackpot for these old gems!   I shot this one with my infrared converted D200.

Palouse Day Five



       
On the afternoon of day five we took a 2 hour drive to Palouse Falls.  It is remarkable how much the landscape changes when you leave farmland of the Palouse area. 

What you cannot see are the wall to wall line of photographers that were on both sides of me at sunset.   Luckily I had staked out my spot before the crowds arrived.

Palouse Day Three




As I continue my series of one picture from each day in Palouse,  I think day 3 was a little harder than the first two.  Now don’t get me wrong,  I really love the truck above and barns that I posted last week on Road Runner Photo Tours, both also shot on day 3.  It’s just that much of the work in between these 2 images fell short of my expectations.   In my opinion you can't hit home runs every time!

Take Time to Photograph the Flowers




Last Sunday evening I grabbed my camera and tripod and did a little photo walk around the neighborhood.  I like traveling to great locations but don’t forget the locations next door!   In the case of the flowers, I just setup my tripod on the sidewalk of a neighbor’s house and clicked away.
