Somewhere around late June to early July in Palouse, the greens will begin transitioning into the warmer golds and browns of ripening crops and grasses. Green grass, hay fields and crops that were planted the prior autumn turn tan before the crops that were planted in spring, resulting in a patchwork effect of greens, golds and browns that provide exciting geometric patterns. They provide excellent opportunities for photographers. Museum quality limited edition fine art print of 100

I shot this lone tree at Steptoe Butte state park, and it was worth the 1,000km ride that I took to reach the destination. The Palouse region of Washington, USA was always on my bucket list for a long, long time. I was pleased as punch with myself when I visited here with my friend Alex, during the peak season of May. I watched the light rings dispersing through the clouds and hit the lush-green fields of the rolling hills. It was a beautiful display of evening light in the region. There was so much more to explore but so little time!

Keenly looking or glancing any images, photos, and portraits containing nature settles a person’s nerves, according to various studies. Certain findings reported in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, suggest that a few snapshots of greenery in your eye-line around the work-desk work wonders with your overall performance! “Viewing green scenes help relaxation and recovery after experiencing a stressful period” according to the journal authors, “and thereby could serve as an opportunity for micro-restorative experiences and a promising tool in preventing chronic stress & stress-related diseases.” Viewing greenery has a calming influence on people, as per the studies.

Researchers at the University of Queensland published a study in 2014, which found that natural greenery in the form of potted plants boosted productivity by around 12% to 15%. If situations demand some alternative to potted plants, go with nature portraits, pictures, or images in your cubicle!

The Green carpet

Palouse is an agrarian region in north eastern Washington near Idaho border. It is also home to some of the most productive dry land contour farms in North America. These fields produce winter wheat and crops such as lentils, peas and barley. Steptoe Butte offers incredible roadside vantage points that provide a 360 degree panoramic view of the undulating fields. Interplay of light created lingering shadows that were interesting to watch. Both sunrise and sunset are a sight to behold, especially with the changing moods of the clouds.
