This wonderful picture looks more like a painting than a photo in its dreamy, surreal quality. Lighting and colors are wonderfully distributed in a soothing mosaic of greens, yellows and dark purples, and the composition is very elegant in the distribution of elements such as trees and that lonely building on the top right.
The artist managed to encapsulate the perfect shot indeed.
The painty quality of the image is what first made me pause and take a better look.
That being said, it is a pity that this photo could easily be lost in a sea of similar landscapes, most of which not half as technically well portrayed as this, but numbers tend to dilute the attention an otherwise excellent piece such as this one would deserve.

The view from Steptoe Butte is always good.  When I lived in Pullman it was one of my favorite places to take visitors.

Rolling green hills takes on a whole new meaning with this. It almost demands a ship sailing through the fields.
First rate work.

So peaceful. I couldn't help but notice, whats that straight line, that slithers @ the top? It's right above the l in the word, farmland, & ends before where sun hits the sand.
