October 2017

Autumn color backlit by the evening sunshine at Fall Park, Sioux Fall, SD
The early part of October provided gorgeous color across the upper plains of South Dakota.  I didn't get out to explore it quite as much as I would have liked, but even so, there were plenty of photos to choose from when picking my favorite dozen of the month.  Click on an image for a larger file to view and thanks for checking in!
