Default Badlands

This summer I spend almost 2 months on a trip through some northwest states. I already posted a couple of photos I took during the total eclipse when I was in Wyoming. Here are a couple of photos I took in Badlands National Park. I was using some different controls in Lightroom and the lighting conditions when I was there were difficult, but I would be interested in what others think of them. All were taken with the K1 and DFA 28-105.



Have you ever just stood in one spot and marveled at the changing light, how it affects a landscape? I did that this day, the clouds and the early morning light made for all sorts of differences at the same scene.







Some others:





I took far too many photos of badlands - in both North (Theodore Roosevelt National Park) and South Dakota. I found the area fun, well worth the time I spent there.

I'm now starting to think of a trip this spring and summer. The only things I've got on the list at the moment are a family get-together in D.C. on Mother's Day, perhaps Florida before that and the Maritime Provinces after, with the possibility of going home by way of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, along with Wisconsin which is the only lower 48 state I haven't been in.

Great Shots . . I really like the way you dealt with the light on the mountain range. Makes me want to go back to the badlands. Enjoyed seeing it thru your camera lens.

Wonderful photographs! I always think of photography in terms of light and composition, and these are great. Landscapes can be difficult to get the right combination.

The International Crane Foundation in Wisconsin is well worth visiting.

Keep the photos coming!
