One of my favorite places to photograph  was this farmhouse in the hills.  We finally had some nice blue skies (although almost cloudless).  As you will see, I included quite a few photos of the farmhouse all from different angles and perspectives.

We stopped along the side of the road to photograph these horses.  I couldn't seem to get the horses to look at me.

Of course there were a lot of grain storage silos in the Palouse so I had to include a couple of photos.   I liked the shot both in color and in black and white.

Another abandoned structure falling apart which I found interesting to photograph.

Our  photo leader took us to some other beautiful hills where we hiked up to get the views.  This turned  out to be one of my favorite places to photograph.  As you can see I had a tough time limiting the number of photos that I included from this area.  There were so many beautiful patterns in the fields.

Just before sunset.

I had to hurry down the hill where I was shooting the sunset photos from so I could make a photo of this tractor with the setting sun in the background.

I believe the next few shots were taken from the hills in Steptoe Butte.  Steptoe Butte State Park is a publicly owned 150 acre recreation area located 12 miles east of Colfax.

Most mornings we were up  bright and early to photograph from different areas.    There were so many different patterns to photograph.

Even though there was so much colour in the hills, I liked the black and white effect as well.

Makes me anxious to see Part 3.
Hard to say which are the better shots, colour or monochrome.

Marsha, It may not be as charming as Tuscany, but these photos remind me of the area in central Saskatchewan where my parents grew up. Unlike the flat southern section, the central area has many rolling hills.

Beautiful pictures, that capture through patterns in the fields and the abandoned and active farms, the human presence without seeing anyone.

You captured everything so beautifully - it really does remind me of Tuscany.

Well Marsha, these photos are truly amazing. I love all of the photos of the farmhouse but particularly the first one. It looks like a painting. And I love the rolling carpet-like landscape that you have captured so beautifully. Nice work!
