The Green is almost gone

For the farmers this is the golden time. For us photogs the green fields are rapidly turning that harvest gold. Almost gone are those undulating, magnificent with shadows, forty shades of green goodness we've been capturing since the winter wheat poked its little head out. The spring plantings are now only weeks away from harvest and I say the winter wheat could be ready anytime. It has been a good season chronicling the Rolling Hills of our Palouse but I'm looking forward to the golden time too.

In fact with a full moon upon us Saturday, I'm going to try and capture a sunset and moon rise just to see what luna will lend to the golden fields. So I'm off Friday eve to my favorite lookout in Whitman County, Steptoe Butte. If nothing else the sunset should be spectacular. Aside from shooting the Palouse its been quiet here in the great Pacific Northwest's, Inland Empire. The weather has been drop dead gorgeous with plenty of vitamin D to absorb and nights cool enough to leave the windows open. To me family and friends in America's heartland, my condolences on the drought and heat with which you've been enduring.

Time to head back out and work on the jungle that used to be my backyard. Be well my friends.
