Summer Scenes

A fawn at Little Moreau Recreation Area in early August.

It is the middle of August and I'm realizing that once again, the summer has flown by.  Although it has been a long and hot summer this time around, I was still able to shoot a lot of photos all over the state.  Many of my photos have been posted in my e-column over at  Here is a link if you are interested:

This post has photos that I captured along my travels this summer that did not make the column as well as a few from my upcoming story on Little Moreau Recreation Area near Timber Lake, SD.  Click on an image for a larger file to view and thanks for checking in.

Sunset and Black Samson at Little Moreau Recreation Area.  The first photo is looking northwest and the photo below is a three image panoramic of the moonrise looking eastward from the same spot.  Twilight on the prairie is one of my favorite times and places to be in the summer.
