Blog Report and Photos from the North Oregon Coast: In early July 2018 Vicki and I made a trip to the coast. We drove to Pacific City and then worked our way north over the border to Long Beach, Washington. Stopping along the way to shoot a few photographs and scouting for the sunset and sunrise to come. We had clear and sunny weather the first day.
Day 3, shooting images of the Palouse, started early with a trip to the top of Steptoe Butte for sunrise. Dave Horton and I had a route planned out with a stop later at Palouse River Falls for the sunset and the full moon rising.
Palouse Photography Road Trip Day 2
Day 2 of our trip to the Palouse started off gray and cloudy. We left Colfax before sunrise and drove to Steptoe Butte, but instead of a sunrise it was more of a slow gray increase in light. No images, from Steptoe this morning, were keepers, so we made our way off the butte and began to explore.
In late May we hit the road and headed for the Palouse area. The rolling wheat fields were green and the weather good. Time for some exploration. Dave Horton and I left The Dalles, Oregon and Dufur area, where we spent the night, as we headed toward the Palouse in Eastern Washington.
