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:

Please tell me what you think! :dance:

Gold in The Hills
Canon 6D
Canon 400mm f/5.6
Circular Polarizer

"There's gold in them thar hills!" :laughing:

Probably would have completely missed this scene had we been driving the other direction! :faint: Sarah and I were driving back from a lazy afternoon of scoping out fall colors around the hills. While working our way back east towards Mt. Rushmore we crested a hill and had these granite spires staring directly at us. Pulled the car to the shoulder and put on my telephoto + CPL, braced my camera against a mile marker post (didn't feel like digging my tripod out of the trunk =D ) and shot a few frames. I loved the color and texture in this intimate composition, with small golden trees hiding amongst the granite spires of the Black Hills.

Please tell me what you think! :dance:

Agricultural Autumn
Canon 60D Camera
Canon 18-135mm

Not my typical landscape work, but something I wanted to share! Fall is in full swing here in the Black Hills, and you run into all kinds of interesting scenes when you take the backroads. :moo:  With fall colors peaking this week and what looks like a pretty solid chance of snow this upcoming weekend, I'm excited to get out and shoot before all the leaves are gone :nod: Hoping to grab a couple of fall timelapse sequences as well, lots of projects in the works! :excited:

Please tell me what you think! Dance!

The Celestial Canopy
Canon 6D :camera:
Orion AstroView EQ-3M sky tracker
3 tracked images for noise reduction
1 non-tracked image for foreground trees

Goodness gracious, adult life is a hell of a thing :faint: Affords you so many opportunities to go and photograph whatever the heck you want, but provides very little time to actually process and share those images! =D Here's a shot from a couple weeks ago on a trip scouting fall color locations. Ventured into a part of the Black Hills I had never been to before and was pleasantly surprised, both with the trees as well as the quality dark skies. A little different from my usual stuff, but hope you enjoy this image as much as I enjoyed staring at the stars while creating it! :aww: Now, back to a couple house projects I need to get done before this weekend :P

Please tell me what you think! :dance:

Autumnal Adieu
Canon Rebel XSi
18-135mm + CPL

Get Prints Here

Just a damn nice sunset :faint: Wasn't expecting to shoot a bonkers sky like this after a fully overcast afternoon, but the light caught my eye just in time as the sun broke and illuminated everything out our living room window in golden hues. Drove expeditiously to the top of Skyline Drive to a new favorite overlook of the Black Hills range. Timelapsed this stunning sky for 20 minutes as colors faded from yellows and golds to deep oranges and pinks. A fitting end to an unseasonably warm start to winter, with "real" winter kicking in for the foreseeable future tomorrow :snow: I was comfortable wearing a t-shirt and jeans while shooting this. Tomorrow, full winter attire will be in order as snow and 40+ mph winds are expected. :wow:

Welcome to South Dakota! =D

Hey, my name is Evan. I've been taking photos for about 8 years and come to this community to gather inspiration and share my work. Thanks for visiting! :)

Current Residence: Omaha, Nebraska

Hey everyone, been a while since I actually wrote a journal entry so figured I was about due! If you follow the photos, then you already know that I relocated to Rapid City, South Dakota for work. I'm working full-time with an in-house marketing team for a couple car dealerships in town. I get to shoot video and stills of vehicles in the Black Hills and Badlands... rough work!

And most recently, my wife JupiterLily and I purchased our first home. So we've gone the whole 9 yards from meeting through deviantArt to getting married and buying a house together.

Outside of that, I've been busy with work! We try to hike when we can but lately the majority of our free time has been taken up with house projects, hence the inconsistent deviation uploads (speaking of which, did dA change their compression settings? Things used to be sharp and are now... not-sharp :hmm: )

Anyway, although I haven't had much time to sit and process photos I've still been taking them, so I've got lots to share :nod: And winter is just kicking in hear so after a fantastic season of fall colors in the Black Hills, I'm looking forward to shooting some snowflakes :snowflake:

But enough about me, what's new with you? =D
