Autumnal Adieu
Canon Rebel XSi
18-135mm + CPL

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

Abduction of Alliance
Canon 6D
Bower 14mm

Purchase Prints Here

A high-precipitation supercell spits out powerful bolts of lightning as it churns just east of Alliance, Nebraska. Not super pleased with the composition here (hate to have a bolt get cut off), but easily one of my favorite frames of the season. This spring and summer were abnormally slow for storms. Luckily, my coworker Cody and I were able to leave work early and make it to central Nebraska in time for this spectacle. We also caught a grungy tornado earlier in the afternoon, but this photogenic mesocyclone was far and away my favorite scene of the day.

Please tell me what you think! :dance:

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

When people think about fall foliage, places like Colorado and the Northeastern US usually come to mind. But here in South Dakota we have our own lesser-known oasis of natural beauty every autumn
:) This was on the road up to Terry Peak, October 2016.
