One reason we came to South Dakota, was to see the Buffalo Roundup in Custer State Park. It really should be called the bison roundup, since that’s what they really are. But I digress.
We arrived a couple days early because we wanted to see the state park before we set up the 3 day art show. I’m glad we came early because this really is a beautiful area. We drove the wildlife loop road our first day here, and got to say hello to the small group of free roaming burros. To call them wild would be very misleading, since they were sticking their noses in peoples cars, and letting people pet them. But Oh my cuteness.
This was the only young one in the little group, such a fuzzy wuzzy.
Our final week or so in the Tetons was spent looking for wildlife, and enjoying the scenery. The Tetons are a never ending source of beauty for me. Sunrise, sunset, heck…..even mid-day, they are gorgeous.
One evening we decided to walk to one of our favorite spots, and the clouds were looking pretty promising for a nice sunset.
Sunrise is really the very best time for the Tetons, as they are to the west. Waking up early to get to where you want to be is a must. Schwabacher landing is a favorite sunrise spot, especially when the leaves start turning golden.
From Clicking to Creating-A different look at things
We made it to Custer state park in South Dakota on Sunday. We decided to leave Wyoming a few days later than planned, which was nice since I always hate leaving there. It always feels like home, and it’s the one place I have friends to spend time with, photography buddies.
I will share some photos tomorrow of our last week or so there. Now that I have better internet, it’s not such a chore to write a blog post.
On to this weeks challenges. The Dogwood 52 is Abstract in the creative category. Photograph something common in a different and abstract way. One morning I was photographing this bull moose beside a side channel of the river. His reflection in the water was nearly perfect, so I took a few shots.
I wish I had thought to include his legs in the shot, because I think that would have helped the image overall. It’s certainly a different way to look at this though.
