During a 2,880 mile, 4 day drive from Philadelphia to Washington State, I made one stop to photograph the Badlands National Park. The Badlands has been on my photography “bucket list” for years. I got up early at 3:00 AM and drove 200 miles to catch the sunrise at the park. I spent only 5 hours driving and taking short walks to capture the typical sights. It was more of a quick scouting expedition rather than a planned photo shoot. I will be back!
The light was rather poor, even at sunrise. But that did not alter my enjoyment of the park. I anticipated that I would end up processing the images in B&W, so I focused my shooting on trying to capture tonal contrasts. During the next few days I will post additional Badlands National Park photos.
