Palouse Fields, Washington State, USA
Traditionally, the Palouse region was defined as the fertile hills and prairies north of the Snake River, in south eastern Washington State in USA. The region is characterized by gentle rolling hills covered with wheat fields.
As seen from a high vantage point they look like sand dunes and photographers have been coming here trying to capture the beauty of the landscape and play of light with changing hours of the day.
Lush green and pastoral scenes are abound during spring when the crop is young, and as they get ready for harvesting in summer landscape turns into varying shades of brown.
Driving almost 300 miles from Seattle towards Palouse has always been on my bucket list
and finally this spring (Year 2018) I got the opportunity.
It was raining on the way and I heard contradictory reports around crops and state of harvest there.
Leaving things to chance I proceeded to travel 5 hours just to get a few shots of this wonderland of America.
On reaching there I was thrilled and all the troubles seem to fade into distant past as I soaked in the expansive rolling landscape carpeted with these wonderful shades of green.
I wish more people get to see and experience this but then again I fear that it might spoil the charm of such a lovely place.
