New Zealand Tour – Red Barn in the Palouse


New, New Zealand Tour announced. Yes, after being pushed and prodded (Thanks Eli!), we are going to New Zealand in April of 2015. Details can be found on the bottom of the TOURS page.  Because of the way things tend to happen with our tours, we already have 9 signed up, leaving only 3 spots. So, if you have interest in the South Island of New Zealand you might want to act swiftly! 

The blog image is another from our recent Palouse trip. We’ve driven past this barn numerous times and have never stopped. This time the clouds were strong and there were sheep pouring out of the barn door.  I pursuaded Dan to stop so I could make a quick capture out of the car window. Glad I did as I love the pastoral feeling of this classic Palouse scene.

In my next post I will discuss the Perfectly Clear plug-in and what I’ve recently learned. This plug-in is pretty powerful and does much more than I realized.

    Hi John
    Love the image of the barn. Anxious to hear more about the Perfectly Clear plugin. That one is new to me.

    Congratulations Mr. Skyman Worldtraveler! Sounds like another great workshop and adventure!

    Another powerful Palouse image! …
    “… out of the car window…” Not bad for a “drive by capture”! Looks like you could have had continuous opportunities with the sheep and evaluating other angles. The sheep are a great addition to your collection. Something you do not see every day and cannot say that I have seen from other photographers. … The beauty of the personal approach to capturing hidden details and real life in the Palouse. … The fun of scouting and leaving things for “next times!”

    All the best to you and yours!
