Photographing the Palouse

For the last couple years, I have been heading to The Palouse region of Washington state in the southwest corner. The best time of year to photograph these picturesque hills is from May through June. The rolling fields of green, brown, and yellow draws hundreds of photographers every year. Although the sky was quite hazy when we arrived and we had rain for an entire day, The Palouse region did disappoint.

This year I rented the Sigma 150-600 sport lens for this trip. Using a telephoto lens is one of the best ways to capture the scenery. Whether you are perched high on Steptoe Butte or just looking for image compression, a telephoto lens is an important tool.

Check out the video to see what I was doing and how I was photographing this amazing place.
