Swallowing Barns In The Palouse

Uploaded: June 02, 2006 16:48:15


This was taken in the late evening in the Palouse region. There had been storma all day and for a few moments the sun broke only to have another storm on the horizon. I have composed this shot so that the barn seemed like it was gettting swallowed up by the storm and that is why I included so my sky to create a story of helplessness
