BADLANDS 5 © 2006South Dakota
We were only in the Badlands for twenty-four hours, but what a glorious time it was! A violent storm ripped rapidly through the area bringing with it a constantly changing sky. I photographed like crazy trying to capture the sunlight reaching the landscape as the sun popped in and out of the dark storm clouds. It is a beautiful spot. Miles of wind-blown prairie grass added great textures to the foreground. In the distance, sculptural buttes, pinnacles, and spires looked a bit like miniature castles.
