:Palouse 2009:

Located just south of Spokane, in Washington state, The Palouse is a rich farming area of some 3,000 square miles. The main crop here is wheat and rapeseed (Canola).
The Palouse is a photographically exciting area to explore, in large measure because it is comparitively unknown. The most striking visual aspect of The Palouse is it's rolling hills, with various crops planted in swirling patterns. Combine this with dappled sunlight and the landscape almost comes alive with texture, colour and sensuous shapes.
The Palouse has been called 'The Louvre of farmlands', and should be on everyone's 'must-see' list.
