This week’s challenge of Landscape should have been a no-brainer, with the only dilemma being which one?  A glance through my blog will reveal many shots of the nearby desert, but there are a couple places in the US that I love to photograph which are miles away from here.  The state of South Dakota, in particular the Black Hills and Badlands National Park, would be near the top of that list.

A few years back, my work was in a gallery where the owner was interested in testing out new images.  Unfortunately, this was in a town with many golf courses nearby, and after a couple weeks, he took this one down because people kept commenting, “What a great place that would be to put a golf course”.  Hopefully, the blogging community will appreciate this one more than the golfers!
