Storm over the Badlands

Storm over the Badlands

Storm over the Badlands  While discovering the back roads, that’s gravel roads, southwest of Badlands NP,  I captured this image on a quick stop; making a simple click.  Why the PCE lens?  Because, it was the lens on the camera at the time.  Although it’s not really needed for this image, it was a new lens to me at the time and like many photogs, I over used the lens.

Yellowstone Sunset

Yellowstone Sunset  Winter in Lamar Valley makes for a cold, yet beautiful day for wolf watching.  More than any time of year, winter in Yellowstone makes me feel the remoteness, the wildness of raw winter nature.  It’s probably my favorite time of year to visit our nation’s first national park.  Although a color image might look a bit more natural, B&W feels like nature’s cold.
