After the Harvest

Palouse Region, Eastern Washington

The rolling green fields of the Palouse in eastern Washington in the spring slowly ripen and the wheat turns to gold. After the harvest, only the tracks of the large combines and trucks are left on the landscape. Fields were formerly burned, but now most fires are accidental. Occasional snow will settle over these hills during the bitter cold of the winter, and the cycle will start again as the fields green up in the spring.  Photo © copyright by Stephen Penland.
