What a fantastic view across these rolling hills of ploughed fields creating beautiful depth to this composition. I like the Pine trees in the foreground as well as in the distance. I like your point of view too and the colours are lovely.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

another lovely landscape shot of the Palouse,
with beautiful POV and fine DOF,
beautiful colour tones well saturated, TFS
Yes the American Indian was in tune with their natural surroundings. Most of us have lost that association and have therefore lost an appreciation of the role of nature in our everyday lives. In a previous critique, I alluded to the importance of "grounding" our children in the knowledge of working in the dirt and the benefits of having a garden. The same can be said for first-hand exploration of all nature. Many, many are the benefits and lessons of nature.
Thanks Bob for such an excellent and beautiful image. The lighting on those rolling hills, close and far away, is magnificient as we look out through the pines to the hills in the distance.

Perfect title for this lovely landcape. The pine trees against the golden grass and the rolling hills in the distance are beautiful. Even the sky is special with the wonderful shades of blue.

Hi Bob. This is like a oil painting . The small fuji has done so well in handling the colours and light. I like very much the waves in the hills in diferent colours. so very well done TFS.

Superb lighting emphasises the contours of the Palouse hills in this marvellous composition and the colours are great, the healthy young pines contrasting well with the yellow grass on the slope.
You have used your Fuki in an excellent way to create a very pleasing image that is great to look at.
Thanks for sharing it Bob,

You sure have some beautiful country up in your neck of the woods. I'm really enjoying viewing the diverse landscapes your posting.
The colors in this one are wonderful and the rolling hills remind me of the waves on the ocean. It's refreshing to see the vast amount of beautiful landscape without the negative intervention from man.
I've been so busy lately I've hardly had time to view any of the postings let alone get any new shots. Rosie and I are taking three days off starting this weekend to get out and enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of fall. Maybe I can get something new to post then.

What a stunning landscape, the colours are amazing, excellent d.o.f. I really like the layers you’ve captured, and in particular the light falling across the hills is just superb, really nice work, all the best,
Cheers Rick :)

Wow, man, this is paradise incarnate!!!
The 'curving' Palouse looks absolutely stunning at this time of the year.
All the variations in light, contour and color in this picture make it a true masterpiece.
The curving ridge in mid-distance appears as if it is specially favored by the sun in some mysterious sort of benediction.
It is scenes like this that make me believe in the essence of goodness in all divinity and intensify my love for Mother Earth, Bob.
You make my day through this picture and I thank you for it.

meravigliosa immagine, mi ricorda in parte per le forme sinuose e i dolci declivi dei paesaggi toscani, ma la natura è più simile ad un paesaggio montano, molto buona la definizione, particolari e piacevoli i colori con una leggera dominante gialla.

Another inspiring landscape from you, my friend!
This Palouse place is indeed a truly amazing place and i've seen many nature photos taken here. But this one here i think shows best the wavy look of all its hills. The BG of your scene here is fantastic and the way the light makes some of the slopes bright and other darker is simply outstanding!
Great shot, well exposed and composed and a terrific note to go with it, too.
Bravo and TFS

This is a very pleasant scene. The rolling hills - a correct name for them. It looks like the fields have had their grass cut - is that right?
I like your colours and lighting, especially how the sun is shining on the long grass where the pines are growing

Shortly: superb. As I promised you, today with more comments: i like very much that curved line of bright yellow on the hills,like gold...And the golden grass from in front gives more shinnes to the picture.

There is something very artistic about this landscape-picture. The curved lines of the different layers are just perfectely displayed. Also the different colours complete each other in a beautiful way. It looks like a natural sheet of music on which the pines are the notes. Very well seen.
Thanks and best regards

Oh... This is amazing! I'm not sure I understand your notes at 100% and I still wonder what Palouse is but this landscape is surreal with superb lightning and control on exposure. POV and composition are wonderful! I have never heard about Nez Perce natives, who are they? This picture has great mood! Thanks,
