It’s pretty amazing how close you can get to sheep without them seeming to care #bighornsheep #ram #wildlife #wildifephotography #badlands #badlandsnationalpark #discoverblackhills #sdinthefield #southdakota

"Rust In Peace…Polaris"
Just a literal title, nothing nuclear about it as originally termed by Mustaine. 🎸
I posted one still image of this before and this is the entire 2 hour time lapse of one of the coldest outings I had experienced so far. With temperature around -19F shooting a star trail was a real bad idea I must say. Shot in the outskirts of Badlands National Park.

The megafauna train has gone from South America to South Dakota with a stopover in Southern California in the past few weeks and I’m proud to deliver the OG Oreamnos americanus, the untouchable ungulate, the bearded bovid, the mammalian multi-pitched master, the mountain GOAT. “Pine needles, it’s what I’m eating cause I’m out of other food” - Some ad I saw on goat TV.

I usually love watching the snow blow off the trees in spearfish Canyon. It's mesmerizing And beautiful. Usually. Except when you get a cloud of blown snow that looks like voldemort/punisher/death, then it gets a little creepy haha.

There’s few words I can use to describe what it’s like to spend a night under the stars. It always amazes me when it’s a clear sky and I tell whoever I’m with to look up at the sky and they blow it off like it’s nothing. A majority of the time I’m doing these by myself because it’s either too cold or too nice to be doing something else for most people. In a few of these shots you can see the Milkyway. The core of the Milkyway is seen during the summer months in the Northern Hemisphere. This year I’m going to take my astrophotography skills to the next level, so if you want to stare into the depths of our galaxy with me you are more welcomed to join; I’ll probably make you hold my flashlight at some point. But I usually bring beer or wine so it’ll be worth it.

Some of these shots are light painted. Let me know if you are interested in me explaining this process for future posts.

"Mount Rushmore Afternoon"

While watching the Winter Olympics I wanted to post something patriotic. So… I decided to post a photograph I took several years ago at Mount Rushmore. Go USA!
