I love the rolling hills that surround this great grain elevator. This was made the other night when the light was magical.  It had just rained so the air was very clear and the light golden. We are finishing up the first tour and getting ready for the second that starts on Monday. Exhausted would be a good word!

    John, That is simply gorgeous ! I can’t decided whether it’s the color or the light that is more magical. I guess they both win. 🙂

    Slainte !

    Oh wow! Just look at those shadows. Wonderful.

    Of course the colours are striking, but it’s those shadows…

      I agree Stephen, its the shadows that make it, but, the light that night was very good too. 🙂

    Palouse is one of those places that one trip there to photograph isn’t enough. Jackson Hole, WY is another of those places.

    Amazing image John. The contours and the contrast you have brought out are quite stunning. As you say, the light MUST have been magical!

      Thank you Irwin. Believe it or not, I processed this image in Lightroom 5, nothing else.
