Palouse Wheat

Posted by
Don (Spokane, United States) on 2 March 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Another shot of the Palouse country south of Spokane about 50 miles (80.4k)
I liked this shot for the way the sunlight fell across the hills and the difference the ripening wheat made to the image. A scanned medium format negative.

Reminds me of an A.Adams kind of image, well executed frame Don. I like how the soft highlights are working in the distance.

What a wonderful movement and light in your immediate foreground, and then the rich contrasting areas throughout the image. Superb.

Thank you for the visit and comment to my blog Don. Having problems with my pc lately, spent the day yesterday trying to get it back to somewhat workable.

Love the above photograph. B/W was a great choice. Just awesome! :)

What beautiful rolling hills you have there, Don. Following your photoblog has given me a new understanding and appreciation of Eastern Washington State.

Le noir et blanc est superbe, comme pour la composition. L'argentique procure vraiment un résultat différent du numérique pour la photo de paysage, aussi bien dans les tonalités du noir et blanc que pour la dynamique.
