Pictures for the Month of May - 2012
One of the things I have learned about Photography is that you never stop learning. I had the pleasure to attend a workshop in the month of May sponsored by K&M Adventures. The K&M Adventures workshop is led by two wonderful landscape and wildlife photographers including the legendary photographer Moose Peterson and his long time friend Kevin Dobler. These two have been shooting for over 30 years and have a lot to bring to the table.
Our adventure was centered in the Black Hills of South Dakota and included beautiful landscape scenery as well as some of the local wildlife. The idea of the adventure was to follow the light. This meant there was no itinerary from day to day. The only sure things were that we were going to Custer State Park for most of the wildlife, Wall Drug in the city of Wall, and the Bad Lands of South Dakota. All of these, and more, provided a tremendous variety for our creative talents. The group was limited to 8 photographers wanting to learn and absorb all they could from these two masters.
Moose is a big fan of the Pronghorn and Bison. Both of these are very plentiful in Custer State Park and we were able to be in the midst of their herds many times to get some incredible images. Below are a few of my favorites that I was fortunate to capture.
Also included in the park were a vast variety of birds as well as the prairie dog. Here are few images of them as well.
Then there are the landscapes. We were lucky to have Mother Nature cooperate and give us some beautiful weather. The only exception was in the Bad Lands where it was very windy, cold, and rainy. Even with bad weather the colors were magnificent and the skies were fantastic. Here are my favorites from the shoot.
One of the best ways to learn a lot and get some beautiful images is to attend a workshop. K&M Adventures gives you the opportunity to work with some of the industry's best with plenty of Q&A and on hand experiences. If you ever get the chance you should jump at the opportunity to attend.
