Golden - The Palouse

Check it out LARGE


I couldn't believe how many images I came back with from the Palouse. We spent 4 days here and each day we had different light. The trip was a challenge to our photography skills. With the light being different everyday, everyday was a new challenge with the light.


On this particular evening we were waiting for the sun to get lower to the horizon so we could head down to the lupine field we found earlier in the day. The sun was still high, but just right to paint the hills with the perfect light and shadows that the Palouse is famous for. There was a nice glow from the sun but obtaining the proper exposure was quite challenging. I could have blended images, but I always try to get exposure correct in the field. After a couple attempts I still wasn't getting the image I wanted. I then through on the lens hood to block some more of the light coming into the frame. Still no good. Then Alan cleverly comes up with the idea to block some more of the sun with the cover of his IPad! Genius! With the combination of the lens hood, Alan's IPad cover and my hand, we were able to block out enough light to get a nice clean image. Who knew the IPad cover would come in handy in the field. So big thanks to Alan for helping me out. Thanks buddy.


August is finally/slowly coming to an end. This has been a long month, but yet has been very productive in achieving a better workflow with my processing. I'll be heading down to AZ and southern UT in a couple weeks and I'm so ready to get out and shoot again. Hope everyone is doing well, happy shooting and good luck with the light.
