To celebrate the summer solstice (at least for those of us in the northern hemisphere), I’m sharing one more picture from my recent time on Steptoe Butte in the Palouse. I know, it might be time to move on to another subject, but this image just speaks summer to me in volumes, so you’re going to have to suffer through one more. 🙂
In my last days in the Palouse, the winter wheat was just starting to turn from green to yellow. It will ultimately turn brown of course in time for harvest, but the transition from green to yellow helped differentiate it from the spring wheat which is still all green. For this image, my camera was pointed almost directly into the sun, which made for some amazing hazy yellow light and some subtle differences between winter and spring wheat.
Don’t know the difference winter and spring wheat? Google it! Or, just enjoy the image!
I’m off on a trip to play scientist for the next week. Wish me luck and see you soon back behind the camera!
