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!

Oh those rolling hills and green, green, green fields. Beautiful.
Yup, they are green! 🙂
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. 🙂
This is my favorite picture!! The light is amazing!
Love, love, love! period.
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.
Contrast, layers, intense colors and JBism! Wowness and awesomeness!!!
Amazing image John. The contours and the contrast you have brought out are quite stunning. As you say, the light MUST have been magical!
wow this image really pops John. The lighting on rolling hills,shadows and contrast just superb.. John, what post processing program did you use to make this image pop.. and what effects used?
Thank you Irwin. Believe it or not, I processed this image in Lightroom 5, nothing else.
