Caption: Steptoe butte WashingtonI have always wanted to see the Palouse in person. Images I have seen remind me of a Robert Lewis Stevenson poem of my childhood, Land of Counterpane. Garth Books illustrated a version in The Tall Book of Make-believe and this real place is almost looks much like that illustration.

Not sure what happened to my first post but this is an amazing series. P.S. I see it of the many issues I have with this site.

This reminds me of some pictures I've seen if Tuscany. I really must visit this magical place some day.

Thank you all so much, I had seen images of the Palouse also and just had to go. It was close enough to do it and I was lucky to thave time off to do it.

I've looked and looked and looked at these images since last night and I still can't believe the uniqueness and beauty of this place. As pokparent said, it truly does look "out of this world." You've photographed it beautifully in this marvelous series. Congratulations on your series AC.

For me too, this is the favorite! They are all marvelous, but this expresses the sheer size of the landscape, as well as its beauty. It really looks other-worldly.

Surreal is right! This one is my favorite of your series. Thanks for sharing, it looks somewhat like a view of the Nebraska Sandhills but they certainly don't carry that kind of color with them :)

About Olbetsy


I am somewhat new to photography. I began with a free point and shoot that came with a computer. It was so much fun, I purchased a SLR camera in 2006 and the hobby swiftly took hold. My camera gets me out and about and has enhanced all my senses finding what this world has to offer. I am also a quilt artist and I use my photography to help me understand color and form that can transfer into quilt art. I am an active member of Emerald Photographic Society and was honored as most promising photographer in 2007 and photographer of the year in 2008. I have recently had images published in National Geographic, the National Wildlife refuge library and National Wildlife Federation Magazine. The contributors to my success are; I carry my camera (s) with me most of the time and I have an Itinerate job which takes me all over rural Linn County Oregon. Many of the photos I post here were shot on a lunch break or from my car window when somethings catches my eye. I am not a person with the patience to set up the perfect photo, instead I bank on spontaneity. I anticipate everything but expect nothing. I look for the big picture though often find a closer focus once I stop and look. Weather is the most important element of outdoor photography. I watch the clouds, temperature, lighting and seasonal changes. Most importantly I have grown to appreciate fellow photographers for insights, tips and all around friendship as much as the hobby itself. I love to see through the eyes of others and WU is a favorite place to visit. I am inspired by the talent found here and have a never ending itch to travel and learn!
