The wide open views in The Palouse hills can be overwhelming; endless rolling hills with no apparent structure. The trick to making a good image here is to create structure by simplifying the design. If you look carefully in amongst the hills, you will be able to find patterns and geometric designs that will guide your eye through an image.
In this image, one lone hill is isolated. The fencing guides the eye to the striped section and finally to the one tree that is king of the hill.
I came across some rather strange geometric designs cut into the hills. It makes me wonder if there is some purpose to it or if farmers just like to have fun.
By the way, all of the images of Palouse I have posted so far are my first images processed in Lightroom.
These are AMAZING Anne!
Very nice – tranquility through simplicity.
