Steve Whis­ton (Near Col­fax, Wash­ing­ton) | June 2012. “I had trav­eled to the Palouse re­gion to take land­scape im­ages of the rolling farm­land and the ab­stract pat­terns cre­ated by the crops be­ing cut in large swaths,” says Whis­ton. “I was out early one morn­ing and heard the en­gine from a crop­duster, and then saw him drop­ping down low be­tween the hills and spray­ing the fields. What caught my eye was the shadow un­der­neath the air­plane, em­pha­siz­ing how low these pi­lots fly on a rou­tine ba­sis.”
