Curves and Swirls

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
BetterPhoto.com Photo of the Day  
Curves and Swirls
Curves and Swirls
This was taken from the top of Steptoe Butte in The Palouse region of southwestern Washington state. The area is known for its picturesque, rolling hills of wheat, barley, lentils and peas. The contours and pockets of the landscape are particularly lovely in the slanting light of sunrise and sunset.

Congratulations on your beautiful POTD, Peggy! This is a lovely, realistic portrayal of the interesting landscape. We were just there for the Memorial Day long weekend. It would have been nice to run into you. lol

You really made the most of that interesting curving line - probably a stream? - here - what a nice foil to the flow of the subtle horizontal lines of the rolling hills. Congratulations on the POTD for this beautiful image.

A superb Palouse composition, Peggy! Love the curvy line leading into the wonderful rolling hills. Long on my bucket list, I had to cancel out on a Palouse workshop this spring and seeing your beautiful images makes me realize what I missed. Congratulations!
