For years I have been interested in the forms of irrigation beasts, as well as the single pipe irrigators enclosed in huge wheels, and the various orchard heaters (I think propane now, the old days perhaps kerosene) and even the aluminum ladders used for picking fruit and pruning...love all that stuff. Don't get me started on the hops picking machines :)

Would you believe I've never been to Palouse area?? Pullman is a three-hour drive from Yakima, and you'd really need to spend a couple of nights to take advantage of sunrise/sunset. Maybe next year :)

Thanks for commenting!

I'm in love with the stark simplicity of the second. Breathtaking! S-

Thank you so much, Steve. I always brake for backlighting!

I'm so pleased you enjoyed, Steve. That was a morning (February 2016) when I decided to shoot everything for black and white, and with few details or midtones, though this looks a bit more gray than my original edit on laptop.

So I over-exposed in camera + took further with editing. I found several pieces of farm equipment on that road + other cool shots around the area. Often if I have a single "topic" in mind, it helps me focus more clearly :)
