Nature is my Inspiration!

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more.
~George Gordon, Lord Byron, Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage

I admire nature and I find myself constantly drawn back to photograph it in all its forms.

Five Photos- Five Stories- Palouse

We had planned a road trip to Yellowstone National Park last summer. Since it was a long drive from Seattle we decided to visit other beautiful locations along the way. We booked an overnight stay at Palouse, as we had read that this place is picture perfect. Most of the visitors go there to capture the beauty of the rolling hills and its unique geological farmland. Regardless of the time of the year that you visit; you are assured of finding a perfect shot.

As we went there in early July the expansive fields of wheat and canola were showing their many hues of green; before turning to yellow. We clicked many beautiful pictures and panorama shots. Few of these can be found in my earlier blog posts here and here.

My thank you to Priceless Joy for nominating me to this special Five Photos Five Stories challenge. I am to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story, either fiction or non-fiction, or a short paragraph, to the photo each day. Next I am to select one person (each day), to carry on this challenge. Accepting the challenge is entirely upto the person nominated, and is not mandatory.

Today I would like to invite, Linda author of the blog Living With My Ancestors to join the fun here.


This a beautiful landscape of a lovely farmhouse surrounded by nature; photographed at Palouse in Washington early this summer.

Photography 101 says: Show us what you see in a landscape. Snap a picture of a landscape. Focus on the gestalt — the entire setting as a whole, rather than a specific subject or focal point within the scene.
