I’m not really sure how broad of an appeal that this image will have. I think it is a little more abstract than most people think of when they see images from Steptoe Butte on the Palouse, but I find this image very striking.
I have been looking at it in my Lightroom Catalog since I returned from the Palouse with the #NxNW2015 crew and every time I look at it I like it just a little bit more. I think it is the subtle texture that I was able to capture with my 500mm Nikon Reflex lens as well as the light and shadow. It doesn’t hurt that there is a cool S-curve through the frame. :-)
