Highlights - Steptoe Butte State Park, Washington

There must be thousands of compositions that can be made from Steptoe Butte. Since this was the third time shooting there, I decided that I would focus (pun intended) in on small sections of the beautiful farmland. Shooting with a 150-600mm lens, it enabled me to really zoom tight. The golden hours of sunrise and sunset are a great time to get the interplay of shadows and light. I think my favorite time to capture the farmland is when the very tops of the mounds are highlighted and the little "valleys" between the mounds are in shadow. I know this is a personal choice of mine and may not be everyone's choice, but, trust me, any time during the golden hour is magical.
