Harvest Moon Dreamscape

It’s always fun to capture a full moon rising behind some scenic Palouse landscape. Vantage points are numerous, given the relative scarcity of trees, so such scenes also provide the photographer with opportunities to experiment with various presentations. This particular pre-harvest night, a friend and I ventured north of Palouse, WA to a spot where we thought we might get a good shot.

These two images were captured from the same location, one as the moon had just cleared the horizon and the other a few minutes later.  The earlier shot was taken at a lower angle, to include the ripening heads of wheat along the bottom.  A slight change in perspective and a darker exposure give the scene a different feel.  One of my friends said it looked like Dreamland; I’ve named it that in her honor.​
