I enjoy photographing the Palouse at any time of the year, but the time between seasons can give some interesting views. My favorite transition occurs between winter and spring. The beauty of the winter lingers as the anticipation of the spring and a newness is evident.
In the image below one can see the patterns in the snow that were left by a rain the day before. This was taken on a very cold morning in late February just after sunrise when the temperature was 18 degrees.
This is one of my favorite barns in the Palouse. It is located about five miles from Colfax, Washington. Just remember when you are planning a trip to the Palouse, look at a time that is not considered to be the prime season and you may be treated to a different perspective of this region.
