August is harvest time in the Palouse area of eastern Washington. It’s also a dry and hot time. While in the area for our JKPW workshop, we saw the evidence of several fields of wheat on fire. In the image above, you can see the red in the sky from the flames in one field.
The fires did not deter us from finding images of the fantastic landscape that the rolling hills of the Palouse offers. This view from Steptoe Butte shows off the fields of lines and patterns, and the dusty conditions.
We were lucky to come across a nice field of sunflowers, still in bloom, right off the highway.
We also had a marvelous sunrise which filled the sky with color at the site of the ‘Palouse Country’ barn.
