The colors and textures of the Palouse hills are primarily influenced by the variable weather and the crops that blanket the fields. While there's a general progression of changes in the appearance of fields over the course of a year, part of the fun of photographing the Palouse is that these patterns aren't set in stone and you can never be exactly sure what you'll see or what the light will be. ...

In June my friend Andrew contacted me and asked if I would go on a hike into Buckhorn Lake. I said sure, but one problem. I have never heard of Buckhorn lake. I asked my brother, Jason, who knows the area well and he said he had never heard of it either. After much searching around on Google Maps, we found the lake. The trail to the lake comes out of the East and starts at a trailhead that is over three-hour drive from McCall.

Andrew began to explain how there was this old sheep herding trail up Idler creek that took you to a saddle above Buckhorn lake.

The needles of these two unusual coniferous trees turn a brilliant gold every fall before they are shed. Both varieties are grown in very specific areas. ... Click Here to Read More
