Travel along Highway 30 in Idaho and you will find a dry landscape of sagebrush and other shrubs associated with the Great Basin Desert. But you will also find that much of the land has been transformed for agricultural uses. All you needed was water and that water is supplied by the exotic Snake River, a river that flows from Western Wyoming to the Columbia River. The river parallels much of the highway and is easily diverted for irrigation.
I shot these images with the Pentax 645N. The film was developed in Rodinal (1:25) for 5 minutes, 30 seconds, @20C.
