The wind was blowing, rain was sideways and the light seemed so close but was so far away. For about 30 minutes it looked like the side light was going to show. The sun set before the clouds moved on. The gold band in the clouds was as close as it came. Initially, I thought this evening was a bust and I passed over this one. It did not meet my pre-visualized picture. Nearly a year later and some more post work, this one is growing on me. It is surely not the classic Palouse scene due to the "terrible" weather. As the rain set in almost all of the other photographers congregated there packed up and fled missing an unusual image.
