Hi Pentaxian friends.

My wife and I are just back from a mini vacation in North-East Washington. Friday, May 7th, I drove to a region called "The Palouse" and had the pleasure to photograph the area for about three hours. I could have spent a whole week there, but unfortunately I was time restricted.  However, in that short time, I was able to capture about 150 shots and I believe that the ratio of  keepers/duds is the highest I've ever achieved. No matter where I was pointing the lens to, it seemed to be the perfect scene.

These kind of photographs are not for everyone, but for people that like rural scenes, barns, fields, agriculture...this place is paradise. All photos were taken with my K-7 and most were through the Pentax DA 16-45mm lens. A Hoya Circular polarizer was installed on the lens and used to enhance the already blue sky. I have included just a few photographs here and more are on my Smugmug Gallery.

I hope you enjoy these pictures and if you ever have a chance to visit Washington State, try to visit "The Palouse". It is an extraordinary beautiful place. The pictures can only give you an idea of the grandeur of the land. Hope you enjoy these images,

Thank you for reading,

Yvon Bourque
