New on 500px : Twin Candles by alexnoriega by alexnoriega

Looks best on black.

Striking formations rise from the grasslands of South Dakota’s Badlands National Park, catching dramatic sunrise light. This is an image from January 2013, shot on a trip back to the Midwest.

There’s not much to work with here if you want this specific perspective, where these formations take on a stoic twin-peaks shape – so I settled on the leading curve offered by this ridge. Full snow cover or wildflowers would be ideal, but both are rare and fleeting, and I never find myself voluntarily in South Dakota. If I did, it’d be for this place alone.

Anyway, did you guys know the red candle can be used multiple times on the same screen? This makes it ideal for finding burnable bushes that are a secret to everybody. It’s also a formidable weapon against slow-moving foes, such as mummies.
