Far and away, tucked into the southern corner of Washington State, lays the Palouse. It is a rich farming area of some 3,000 square miles with vast rolling hills and exquisite mosaics somewhat reminiscent of Tuscany. This image was taken before sunset from the Step Toe Butte, when the sun is low in the sky. The rich colors and shadows created at this time of day is enchanting. The hills ignite in a kaleidoscope of colors ranging from exquisite deep purples, oranges, and multi shades of green to yellows and reds. It is a vision of unimaginable beauty that unfolds before you.
