    Nice--the strong contrast and hard light suits the subject.

    Funnel clouds, fortunately, are extremely rare around here--full blown tornados, never, AFAIK. There's not much post-processing on that shot--it really did look like that--but the weather was actually pretty calm. This was about 6pm, after a day of rain.

    Actually (puts on pedant hat) the Palouse rolling hills are wind-blown loess that predates the Missoula Floods, drifted over 2 million year old Columbia basalt as thick as 250 feet in places. If you look at satellite images, you can clearly see how prevailing winds out of the SW shaped the hills. When the Floods ripped through during the last Ice Age, the hills were stripped back down to basalt, resulting in the Channeled Scablands, suitable for ranching but you can't grow much on it. Great examples of Scablands around Washtucna, WA (with Palouse Falls nearby), and running north up towards Grand Coulee Dam. Dry Falls is another well-known flood feature (close pedantry).

    The west side often gets the scenic love in our state (for obvious reasons), but as you probably noticed, I'm kind of a fanboy for the east side.

    Thanks. I like seeing your other posts popping up of the area. Yeah, life where I'm at is getting too much of a rat race. The ebb and flow of the rush hour tide makes going anywhere frustrating. Time to move!

    I like this very busy image that reminds of transit in Chicago.

    Soft, yet detailed.
