A visit to Steptoe Butte in the Palouse for sunset gave me much more than I had bargained for as a huge dust storm blew in, obscuring everything in sight and nearly blowing me off the hilltop with gusts that had to be in excess of 70mph. I stuck it out and the payoff was the afternoon light. An enormous dust cloud added a dramatic feel to the scene. Sidelight adds shape and texture to the rolling hills. The light value was well within my camera’s exposure range, enabling me to shoot as metered.
