Harvestland by Foxfires Harvestland by Foxfires
And now for something completely different.....


Last night, I went on a little photo-hunting trip with :iconstewdog: and :icondarkstar74: - to the plateau prairieland that is in Central Washington. The bonus of living in the Cascade Mountain foothills, is that we are about 40 minutes away from alpine-like mountains, or wide open farmlands like you see in these pictures, depending on which way you drive.

We got up on the plateau just in time for the golden light of evening... and there were long stretches of time when all you would hear is the rustle of wheat in the wind.

I didn't want to flood my gallery with a bunch of pictures, but I loved how so many of them turned out... that I figured I would try a collage of them, in order to just give a feel for what the evening was like. Much fun was had.

These are all my pictures, but make sure you check *Stewdog and ~DarkstaR74's galleries, because they'll soon be posting their own photos from the evening as well. :)

These were all taken with my nifty Canon Powershot S3. :w00t:

Some amazing photos. I especially like the bottom left picture of the seemingly endless golden field.

This is AWESOME! I love it! It's so fresh and different for you. In fact you've inspired me to do something like this in the Philippines (where I am now). I'll let you know once I've done it! :)

Thank you!! That's so cool! I can't wait to see it!

After I was done with this, it actually turned out better than I thought it would! I'm planning on doing more picture groups like this as well. :nod: :boogie:

Reminds me so much of Western Nebraska. I love that kind of land.

HAHA! I just got back last weekend from a quick little trip to Idaho with my hubby and I took a few pics that look similar to yours in Vantage. Now you have given me the bug to download them and play for a bit. Thanks for the inspiration bug!!!! These are great!

i love the ones of the wheat especially, for some reason. the color of wheat is a warm, peaceful color, and always reminds me of freedom and simplicity. i think you captured that very well.
