August 2016

A sunflower field near Hayes, SD
I logged a lot of miles this August.  My hometown's annual celebration at the beginning of the month and a few weekends just roaming the eastern side of the state either chasing storm clouds or prairie scenes allowed a lot of opportunity to put something interesting in front of my lens.  Here are twelve of my favorites.  Again, it was a tough task to whittle them down to twelve, but I think that is a good problem to have.  Click on an image for a larger file to view and thanks for checking in!
