The past 10 days has seen winter’s reemergence in the Palouse. Snow first led to a meeting among myself, Peyton Hale, and Grant Meyer. Our destination was Steptoe; our hope was the fog seen along the highway would have breaks, kindly giving us fantastic conditions. Fortunately the weather cooperated for us stingy photographers and provided a wonderful dawn. Here are three photos from that morning.
Photos and Details:
(1) Shot with 70-200 + 1.4 extender and cropped after further consideration. Tekoa Mountain is visible in the distance just above the fog.
(2) Two shot (landscape) panorama stitched in Photoshop. This was shot before sunrise, providing very soft, low contrast light.
(3) My favorite image. Three shot (portrait) panorama stitched in Photoshop. No filtration used. The earth shadow was quite strong and complimented the receding fog and snow covered hills. I find a three shot portrait-oriented panorama crops very well to the native 2:3 aspect ratio of my camera.
