I had to look at the picture several times to find it. It has style. Not the same as pinkish sunrises at the smooth sea but it's there.
Have you used a polariser?

Refreshing view of the Palouse. It could be Italy, France, even Australia, making it universal. Yet, it comes across as unique. The crows make it edgy and dynamic. The background rhythm of the fields and windrows gives the scene a sense of comfort. The two together create a tension that draws me into the story. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Terry. Your comments are much appreciated. Biker I'm not sure to what you're referring but I do appreciate you taking a look.

Yes I very much agree with you Terry, this is an excellently moody shot. In fact that whole 'standardised' rolling hills, highly cololured Palouse abstract thing we seem to be seeing more and more of these days, is starting to become a little too passť if you know what I mean, and becoming a bit like all those oversaturated slot canyon shots that seemed to be everywhere about a decade ago, but yet we now see very few of. Don't misunderstand me, I am not getting all snooty about the Palouse or slot canyons etc, as I have thoroughly enjoyed a few of them myself in the past. I am just saying that sometimes we all seem to go mad for something and it becomes a trend and so we all gorge ourselves on it, to the point where we can't stomach it anymore.

But this shot is a refreshing departure from that 'standardised' version of the Palouse we see so much of and is a very welcome one I think  :)

Besides what has been said, I also like the intriguing aspect of:

- seems like the crows are departing from the house/farm, adding a spooky feeling to the scene.

It has an air of menace, almost Hitchcockian. Well done!

Yes, you have used it, not shown it (again).

Thank you all for your observations and comments. Image was taken last year with a Fuji xt-2 and 18-135 lens with an UV filter on it. I've been  down south ( hiatus from the computer and winter).
