Quick Shots – Steptoe Butte

Steptoe SunsetEarlier this week, Tanya and I spent two nights in the Palouse. I’ve posted about the Palouse before (see this post from last summer about the Palouse in its “brown phase”, and these two posts from three years ago – one about the Palouse in general, including Steptoe, and one concentrating on the church at Freeze, Idaho), so for now, I’ll just post a few images I took from Steptoe Butte. More from the trip later. Meanwhile, enjoy these images taken from Steptoe Butte last Monday evening.

  5. Great images! I can’t tell you how tremendous the final image is, my friend. Number four looks like a golf course fairway.

    • Thanks Dan. Hard not to come away with some good shots from Steptoe, at least if you have a big enough lens. I used a 100-400mm zoom on most of these (except the two wide angle shots of course).
