The End of the Day

The Palouse is one of my favorite spots to photograph. It is one of the largest wheat growing areas in the United States and spans from Eastern Washington into North Central Idaho. It provides endless opportunity for graphic patterns in its rolling hills and changing seasons as well as having some of the most photogenic barns I have seen in my travels.

I have traveled to the Palouse in both the spring and harvest times, I hope to visit during the fall and winter in the next couple of years. This photograph was taken during the harvest season at sunset on one of my favorite hills on Klaus Road, outside of Colfax. There was alot of dust in the air from all the harvesting and earth turning which provided the colorful sunset and the only thing available as subject matter was the tractor. Normally I would not go out of my way to photograph farm equipment but the sunset was so beautiful I just had to try.
