Wheat, Washington 2011
This is the third of the bodies of work from the southeastern corner of the state of Washington called "The Palouse" represented on the website. As I write this now in August, 2012 I am working on a new group from a trip made in late July.
The photographs from this 2011 trip were made in mid May, a very different time in the region. It is very early in the growing season and the crops are either just showing bright green or are still turned under from the previous winter and are bare. There are also some fields that are the stubble remaining from the previous harvest in the fall.
As usual, I stayed about a week and photographed from the air as well as on the ground.
We will post the new 2012 wheat field pictures soon.
