The image is of the Milky Way Galaxy, photographed in the Badlands National Park, South Dakota.

The Badlands National Park, South Dakota.
A closeup of President Lincoln on Mt. Rushmore in South Dakota.
From my trip out west to past summer.
I thought visiting the memorial would be fun, but it was also
inspiring and I recommend it. Nearby is the Crazy Horse Memorial
which is also a recommended visit.
An iconic American symbol.
I photographed this animal in
Custer State Park, South Dakota.
Last week I posted on my other blog taking a portrait photo of my daughter in the Badlands National Park while we waited for the sky to darken and the Milky Way Galaxy to appear so we could take photos. (The post I am referencing – Portrait in the Badlands.)
The image above is one of the Milky Way Galaxy photos I made. Let me add, it’s not easy when the only practice I get taking astronomical photos is once a year “IF” I make a trip out west. Really dark skies for this type of photography isn’t easy to come by in New Jersey. I have photographed the moon and a comet, but those images didn’t present the challenge the photograph above presented.
…in South Dakota.
There are several very narrow car tunnels in South Dakota.
This one was on Rte 87 Needles Highway near Custer, SD.
