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.
In late May, Dave Horton and I were headed from Eugene to the Palouse area in Washington, but made an afternoon stop at Dufur, Oregon. We were looking for abandoned buildings near Dufur and found several. We also planned on taking some morning images near Maryhill, Washington. Knowing we were going to be out past dinner time, we picked some fried chicken in The Dalles, Oregon.
