Endless Grain

And, finally, we’ve arrived at what we drove all that way to look at: the Palouse. I’ve wanted to go there for ten years; my expectations were very high, both in terms of photographic value and in beauty of landscape. I was not disappointed in either.

A chatty fellow at a cafe told me that I was there at the “wrong” time, that June was when I ought to have visited because that’s when the famous Palouse wheat fields are green. In spite of that, I am glad I went in the fall, when the harvest was underway. The fields, all in different stages of the harvest, were different colors and textures. And they changed every day.

I am very tall. Apparently.

Goodness! I am SO TALL. And so very, very thin. At least according to this reflection which doesn’t appear to be in the least bit distorted.

Lake Night (with Sagittarius)

We spent three nights at an excellent VRBO just across the street from Sanders Beach. The Patient Spouse went scuba diving in the lake one morning and the next evening I made some night photos. I was a little hampered by the exceedingly bright almost-full moon, but I was able to capture Sagittarius and just the tiniest hint of the Milky Way.

Tour Boat

Well, look at what I did! I took a photo with people in it. And I did it on purpose, too.

In Motion

Lake Coeur d’Alene drains into what becomes the Spokane River at Post Falls, Idaho. In the late summer, the falls are slow but there’s still some nice water movement. If you like that sort of thing.
