Week of May 28, 2013


Betty K. Rodgers and Ken Rodgers share photographs taken in April, 2013, in the Northwest's Palouse region. Now mostly farmlands, cattle and sheep ranches once dominated the area.

Betty K. Rodgers comments on her photos:

Here is a barn in the Washington State region of the Palouse. The gentle saddle of the barn roof caught my eye in the distance:

Where the people who farm the land are true artists:

These photos are by Ken Rodgers. He comments:

This was taken from Steptoe Butte, on the Palouse, a windy spring day. I like the patchwork of land use that shows up, and the depth of the panorama. The Palouse farmers do a lot of dry land farming of wheat, lentils and other legumes
