Summerfime Sunflowers

Summerfime Sunflowers

All sorts of crops are grown in the Palouse which is most famous for wheat. Peas, lentils, barley and Canola are also common. One of the least common and most spectacular for me are sunflowers. There is just something about coming upon a field that goes forever with sunflowers. This filed is located on the northern edge of the Palouse in Valleyford Washington just outside of Spokane. The sun was not being very cooperative on this day as it is beginning to set off to the right of this image. A large storm cell moved in blocking most of the last light of the day but just enough of the light came through to give some pastel color to the clouds. A side note, the field in the back ground was bright yellow only a few weeks earlier. It is a canola field. How amazing would it have been if both were in bloom at the same time.

I offer a variety of landscape, nature and wildlife images and fine art digital paintings. I also have many agricultural, farming and countryside images as well. Most of my work is from around the Pacific Northwest, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, British Columbia, and Alberta. Please look through my galleries or visit my website to view my full portfolio.
