It's Mirrorless Monday and the perfect day to share an image captured by my good buddy Shiv Verma. Shiv's a LUMIX Ambassador and always sharing images that leave so many of us wanting more.
He was in the Palouse, and I grabbed this explanation from Wikipedia:
"Traditionally, the Palouse region was defined as the fertile hills and prairies north of the Snake River, which separated it from Walla Walla County, and north of the Clearwater River, which separated it from the Camas Prairie, extending north along the Washington and Idaho border, south of Spokane, centered on the Palouse River. This region underwent a settlement and wheat-growing boom during the 1880s, part of a larger process of growing wheat in southeast Washington, originally pioneered in Walla Walla County south of the Snake River."
The image was captured in Washington state, south of Spokane. Shiv wrote:
The fields of the Palouse photographed along the road about midway to the top of Steptoe Butte. It started with cloudy skies, but then the sun peeked through providing lovely light.
Captured with the Full-frame LUMIX S1R and the LUMIX S Pro 70-200 mm f/4 lens at 200mm. Exposure triad: f/11, 1/40 sec, ISO 200. Click on either thumbnail below for more information.
