No matter where you drive throughout the Palouse, there always seems to be scenes like this around the corner, especially during the golden hours of sunrise and sunset. The rolling landscape is prominent in the landscape and there always seems to be the top of a hill that shows the undulations of some of the most fertile farmland in the United States. Shooting during the golden hours really puts the undulations on display as the low sun cast a combination of light and shadows. As you drive through the Palouse, you will occasionally see a farmhouse like this one that is surrounded by trees. Trees are a rarity as the fertile landscape is too valuable for them. Usually the trees around the farmhouses are there to provide shade and protection to the residents.
