I love to paint with light, and this morning was a great time to do that on the rolling hills we found. The sweet light of sunrise added warmth and shifted the colors of the wheat fields, blended with the still green fields, and the shadows were just yummy. I panned my camera at 1/6 second to get this effect, using a 200mm lens. To me it reflects the undulating hills of crops in this region in an interpretive way.
We finished up our tour this morning and it’s hard to say goodby to the friends we made and the fun times we had photographing here. We’ll be back!
Thank you John! Me, too. When the wonderful sweet light of morning or evening just skims the tops of the hills, it creates a wonderful tonal range for this type of image. You really need variation in the fields for it to work, and we were lucky this year with the greens/golds and browns mixing nicely! I’m sure you got a few great ones, too, my friend.
Wonderful Brenda. Love doing “swipes” in the Palouse from Steptoe.
