Red Barn, Eastern Washington, 2012

Red Barn, Eastern Washington, 2012

Been a long time. Family matters bring me back to Asia and it feels a bit odd, but here’s one from the archives, made some 4 months and 16 time zones away…

I made this image in summer just outside Uniontown in Eastern Washington. Ed and I were on our way home from the weekend shoot, still marveling at the broad bands of light and shadow that lazily drift over the Palouse when we drove past this lush field of green…and lo and behold…a picture-perfect red barn. It was obvious that the owners didn’t want trespassers traipsing through the delicate wheat so we stuck to the public areas, absorbing the beauty and making a few images.

1/800 second at f/8, ISO 100. Nikon D800E + Nikkor AF-S 24-120mm f/4.

      • I’m going to be attending a photo workshop in N.W. Oregon mid-May but would like to tack on one week in the Palouse right after just in time to capture the spring greens.
