Another year in the books, and it was a doozy for many... good riddance, 2020!
2020 was a rollercoaster, but we did have a number of positive things to reflect on for the year including...
We refinanced our house (how boring and adult, I know)
Saw the AWESOME Comet Neowise
Went on a backpacking trip to the Wind River Range
@JupiterLily and I celebrated our 4th anniversary
I picked up a new hobby (any other disc golfers out there??)
Chased LOTS of storms
A bunch of things I'm forgetting...
Anyway, hopefully we can all move forward into 2021 and strive for a better year. No fancy specific resolutions from me, but you can bet I'll be out there taking pictures, video, timelapses... and never getting around to posting them Alright, maybe one resolution starting with posting a few new photos. The 2021 "DakotaScapes" calendar is available for anyone who hasn't seen it yet! https://bit.ly/2KW7F3V Since those images are all processed up to print quality, I'll probably actually get them all loaded onto DA as well as into FineArtAmerica. For a preview of the images, look below!
I'm currently working on a little Year-In-Review video featuring lots of storm clips. Anyone else have any fun projects in the works for this year? :)
Stay healthy and stay safe!
It's been a busy year here in South Dakota. @JupiterLily and I have been slowly improving our house, working, and of course getting out to enjoy the Black Hills whenever time allows. Which if you're curious, you can actually view some of our hiking shenanigans here! We also snuck down to Colorado to buy a vehicle I've had my eye on for quite a while, a 1966 International Harvester Scout 800. Once she's running a little more reliably I'm sure I'll have more photos to share! Right now I'm cutting a video for YouTube sharing our trip down to Colorado to check out the Scout as well as some Colorado scenery...
Doing video production at work every day has had me leaning more into that sphere than photography as of late, but I did still manage to get out and take enough photos to fill a calendar with! You can grab that on lulu.com for $14.99 here https://bit.ly/38dBDY4 and be sure to keep an eye out for any shipping specials they have going on! I'll get all of those submitted to dA in due time, and perhaps the videos as well if there's any interest :)
I've definitely been more active on Facebook and YouTube than dA over the last year but don't worry, I'll always come back here to check in with everyone! Since I met my wife and some of my best friends through deviantArt it would seem a waste to ever go truly dormant
Anywho, what's new with everyone else? What do you want to see from me next? Snowflakes, lightning, general life updates? I've got terabytes of photos sitting here and am taking requests =D
