The view over the Palouse from the top of Steptoe Butte reveals the sweeping installations of wind turbines along the foothills of the Blue Mountains in the distance.

LANDSCAPES -- Hugh Imhoff drove to the top of Steptoe Butte Wednesday morning to take advantage of the cool, clear weather for scenic photography.

The Palouse Hills that stretch out like waves in a stormy sea provide scenic camera fodder that changes with the seasons and even in the hour as clouds and sun sweep across the sky.

But Imhof's eye was attracted to the foothills of the Blue Mountains in the distance near Pomeroy, where wind turbines have dramatically changed the view in just the past few years.
