Earthscape # steptoe Butte sunrise

A few minutes post sunrise from the bird’s eye view atop the Steptoe Butte, using the reach of 200mm Lens.

Now is a great time in the Palouse region, when you get a bit of earthy browns and verdant greens combined together in the same frame. Getting the slanting light accentuates the sinuous shapes better than at other times of the day. Shooting landscape in Palouse region is easy and difficult at the same time. Easy because the region is so picturesque that pretty much all you have to do is turn up but at the same time it is very popular and hence over-photographed which makes it hard to come back with anything original or different looking :)

  3. Super photo Abu!!! I love all the lines, textures and shapes that are visible. It’s a real treat for the eyes. And this one is indeed different and original. Well done!!!!

  4. Beautiful photo. I love that part of the country. I had relatives in Kennewick, Walla Walla and Spokane. I always loved visiting them. Especially early summer because of the colors and rolling hills. Thank you for sharing it. -Max-

    • I agree..beautiful region. I’ve been told late summer with the harvest giving it a golden hue and snow capped winters make it equally interesting if not more !

    • Thanks Jane…it is a beautiful region – the rolling hills of palouse and very popular among photographers.
