Steptoe Butte is a 3612 foot quartzite butte that looms 1000 feet over the Palouse. There is a road that winds around the butte all the way to the top, where they say that the eye can see for 200 miles in any direction. Most days you can see photographers stopped at various points along the road with their cameras mounted on sturdy tripods... some photographers have a confused look on their faces, there is so much to see that its hard to decide what to focus your lens on. The light changes from morning to night, changing the look from one minute to the next of the shadows and highlights on the rolling hills below.
Here are some photos, taken over a period of three years.... in different seasons and at different times of day.
