I’m excited to present another installment of “Through Their Eyes.” This time from the Palouse!  If you would like to join me next June in the Palouse, I am taking deposits now. Check out my WORKSHOP page!  

Anna Jo –

My favorite image from the Palouse happens to be the first image I shot. It was difficult to choose just one image as my favorite because they are all my favorites.
John and Dan went above and beyond to find us the perfect locales to shoot which made this experience one I will treasure forever.

Carol – To me, this blur captures the essence of my Palouse experience… dreamlike visions of soft patterns.  What I love about the this area is how the light plays on the rolling hills, emphasizing sensuous curves in the landscape and creating varied shades of green.  Driving in the Palouse landscape was a delight for the senses that made me smile and my heart sing.  This was my first trip to the Palouse… thank you John and Dan for a terrific time!

Ann 

Far out to the horizon supported by sensuous green

A distant tree shrouded farmhouse can be barely seen

Haze or blue or cloudy…shadows on the land

Sunlight playing dodge ball beyond where I stand

Clouds of dust fill the air as the truck goes by

Covering my camera I look up to the sky

I see the mythic vision of mystery and light

Photographing the Palouse requires my mystic sight

I review my images…they speak not of that time

Emotions seem to be missing

Prompting my writing this rhyme

Where did the feelings travel?

Did they come back with me?

Hiding within my heart space,

Begging me to see?

Carla – The trip to the Palouse was one of my VERY favorites of the John Barclay/Dan Sniffin photo tours I have had the privilege to be part of. The task of choosing an image was very difficult because there were so many stunning scenes. I selected this one to show the colors, shapes and patterns that make this area a photographer’s paradise.

Judy  – The Palouse was such a visual treat to photograph.  I took this as we were leaving Colfax the last day. Many of my images include a windmill and this one was perfectly placed on the canola field just coming into bloom.

Midge – We travel to one of the most unique areas of the US to photograph and my most favorite image from the trip has nothing to do with the landscape.  Go figure.  But I’ll bet no one else submits an image like mine.  I was in heaven when we stopped at Dave’s Old Truck Rescue in Sprague.  I LOVE old stuff.

Beth –  I had a few favorites but settled on this one because I was drawn to this row of trees; every time we drove by them, I wanted to stop but couldn’t so I shot this from the car.

Danielle – At twilight on Steptoe Butte, admiring the local farmer’s artistic crop design.  I loved the sinewy line leading to the lone tree and the velvety texture of the fields.

Greg – With hundreds of great images of the rolling hills, old cars, old towns, trains, grain bins and more, the Palouse is just so darn target rich for a place with nothing in it!  Though simple, I’ve liked the story this image tells and it’s composition since I first saw it, and one reason it’s a favorite is that I framed it this way in camera – there is absolutely no cropping here.
