[Click to Enlarge] This may be our fourth or fifth visit with Horace Sykes to the top of Steptoe Butte. The view is to the south and, I believe, a little to the east too. Sykes’ decision to include a horizon of the hill as well as the quilt of Palouse wheat fields below it is typical of his often displayed urge to when shooting something far off to also include something nearby. And here the lift of that upstanding cloud plays parallel to the rise in the butte’s horizon. All is right with the world and heaven above.
