Palouse Patchwork

Back to my recent trip to the Palouse...... Photographing in the Palouse was pure joy because there was a photo to be made almost anywhere you looked and in almost any light.  Because there were different crops being grown side by side, and because the different crops had different shades of green and different rates of growth, the landscape was just a patchwork of color that took on an abstract feel.

I have always enjoyed photos where a small detail is important or helps to define the image. In this image I feel that the tree, even though it is quite small in the photograph, plays an important role in 'grounding' and orienting the image to the viewer.
