I’ve always wanted to photograph Palouse Falls during sunrise. I’ve been inspired by Chip Phillips and his incredible photos of this waterfall during sunrise and I hoped to get one of my own. Unfortunately after about a week of wonderful stormy cloud cover and epic sunsets in eastern Washington, this morning was crystal clear. Nevertheless, I had a wonderful time photographing Palouse Falls all alone this morning and watching the sun come up behind me. Lack of clouds and an eye-popping sunrise still doesn’t diminish the beauty of this awesome canyon and waterfall in eastern Washington.
