Finally, I got around to editing something besides barns! I started my first morning in the Palouse by shooting the sunrise from Steptoe Butte. True to my luck, the sunrise was very underwhelming. Excited and not being able to sleep, I left the house nearly an hour early and found myself atop Steptoe Butte in the dark trying to decide where the sun would eventually rise. I was not ready for the fierce wind and bitter cold. It was a miserable couple hours spent on top of the butte waiting for something worth shooting. When the sun finally did come out, it was hidden behind clouds and I never even got a view of it and the surrounding colors were underwhelming. This was my best sunrise photo of the morning. Luckily, the light did reveal some beautiful fields that I shot before leaving the made the hours in the cold almost worth it.
