Overgrown - Steptoe Butte Foothills, Colfax, Washington

There are lots of deserted farmhouses, barns and equipment that dot the broad landscape that is the Palouse. Some of them are famous stops that numerous photographers have found and given names. Others are not as widely known (as least to me) that you stumble on and you fall in love with. That is why it pays to take a photo tour or photo workshop to take advantage of the local knowledge. This abandoned barn was located somewhere in the foothills of Steptoe Butte. It was a bit of a dreary day, but the orange equipment in the tall green grass seemed to be a great subject. Working with my friend and workshop leader extraordinaire, Denise Ippolito, we worked this scene from all angles. This composition was my favorite.
