Homestead Tempest
Canon 60D
Canon 18-135mm

This image is featured in this year's 2019 "DakotaScapes" Calendar

A departing squall line dwarfs the decaying remains of an abandoned farmstead in rural Meade County, South Dakota. While storms proved too quick to keep up with, the light on the backside a they departed provided for some truly dramatic contrast :)

Custom prints available upon request. Please tell me what you think! :dance:

Gems of Winter
Canon 60D
Reversed Canon 18-55mm
Reverse macro technique

This image can be found in this year's "DakotaScapes" 2019 calendar: bit.ly/2Qd3ZMA

A small collection of some of my favorite snowflakes from last winter :snowflake: Need to get my setup figured out for this winter. As much as I hate freezing my hands off, all of the annoyance of the cold melts away when beautiful flakes like these start falling! :excited:

A little about how these were shot:
Flakes were "caught" on a glass picture frame. A light was placed several feet below the frame, and I shot with the camera from above. Since this made the snowflakes a backlit silhouette, I inverted the images in Photoshop, converting their black silhouettes into a more traditional "white" snowflake :nod:

Please tell me what you think! :dance:

Badlands Bolt
Canon 6D
Canon 28-80mm

This image is the cover of this year's "DakotaScapes" 2019 calendar: bit.ly/2Qd3ZMA

One of my favorite images of the year... and one of the only cloud-to-ground strikes to emerge from this storm! After a long night of shooting lightning in the badlands, I thought about calling it quits and heading home for some sleep. There had been no cloud-to-ground strikes up until this point, but this single bolt was responsible for preventing me from packing u =D I'm glad it did, because as I was leaving the park, a storm just to the northwest started to light up and put on a spectacular light show complete with plenty of cloud-to-ground strikes (view video of that storm here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=XL9cGY… ). I've got more to share from this night but until then, enjoy this frame! :thanks:

Please tell me what you think! :dance:

Westside Sundown
Canon 6D
Canon 28-80mm

When there's a good sunset, you shoot it. :camera: No matter where you are. I caught the color of this one blazing out our back window and ran to the street just before it faded. Early in my photography "career" I would share countless shots of suburban sunsets much like this. I think this is the first shot I've shared from our new neighborhood on the west side of Rapid City, South Dakota! :nod:
