The Lewis Clark Valley is on the border of Washington and Idaho and is where the Snake and Clearwater rivers confluence. We went for a drive "up river", which is to say up the Snake River to where it meets the Grand Ronde River. It was very peaceful and I wish we had had more time. Next time we are going back in the summer.
I love walking around a city at night. The contrast between the bright lights and the deep shadows is compelling. and every light is a different color. It's so much fun to find a great scene and do really long exposures in what would otherwise be a fairly dark environment. Here are a few shots from a trip to Washington DC. Whereas I of course shot some of the famous landmarks, here I wanted to show more normal, albeit beautiful scenes.
If you've never seen the rolling wheat fields of Eastern Washington's Palouse region, you're missing out. As beautiful as the fields are just before harvest time, they are even more magical when they are covered with a blanket of snow. At times the ground and the sky almost blend together and you need to concentrate to see subtle changes in form and texture.
