Before we could get to our campsite at the Hanna Campground south of Lead, SD, we got caught in increasingly heavy snow. As we went through Spearfish Canyon, an eerie scene unfolded. As the snow continued to pound down, we gradually lost visibility of the peaks. So we were driving with walls of trees/granite along the sides of the road that disappeared into the sky. Certainly not a scene your typical Midwesterner is used to!
Dangerous driving conditions aside, it was actually quite beautiful. It was still a couple hours before sunset, but the clouds were so thick that they sort of preemptively induced "blue hour" (typically the type of light you get during twilight). As you can see, the flakes that were falling at this point as we pulled over to shoot near Savoy, SD were quite large
They were also awesome
dendrites. Sort of kicked myself for not taking my reverse macro lens, but knew this wasn't the time or the place anyway
We had mor important things to do, like get to our campground before we were snowed out! Want to see more of my work? Check out the links below!
