We are on the road today.
Back in September 2016, our family hiked in Badlands National Park.
I am going to share the light changes in the canyons and pinnacles.
As the sun moves the painted canyons change in the colors.
You may see reds, yellows and deeper colors as the sun moves.
Midday light can be harsh and unflattering.
A photographers dream is just after a rainstorm. The colors become extra saturated.

I will let you scroll the rest of the photos.
Look for the colors, the blue of the sky, the patterns in the canyons.
The Badlands can be a dangerous place to explore, particularly for the photographers who have their eyes glued on their veiwfinders! The rock crumbles easily and is very slippery when wet. Make sure that before you move your feet, you move your eyes as well - away from the camera.
Frank Lloyd Wright wrote in a letter to a South Dakota newspaper editor Robert Lusk:
Let the sculptors come to the Bad Lands. Let painters come Let the truest of artists come .... He who could interpret this vast gift of nature in terms of human habitation so that Americans on their own continent might glimpse a new and higher civilization certainly, and touch it, and feel as if they lived in it and deserved to call it their own
Thank you for joining me today!
Have a blessed weekend.
