October 2015

Low hanging fog at dawn over Badlands National Park.
On the first day of October, I watched the sun come up over Badlands National Park.  Not a bad start to the month!  I was also able to spend a little time in the northeastern portion of South Dakota chasing sunrises and fall colors.  Here are twelve of my favorites photos of the month.  Click on an image for a larger file to view and thanks for checking in!

The first sunlight on the land.  The dots on the ridge are bighorn sheep.

October sunset in western Minnehaha County.

Sunset over the fishing pier at Lake Alvin Recreation Area, east of Harrisburg, SD

Later the clouds turned into what looked like a dragon chasing the sunset.
