New on 500px : Badlands Rainbow by sysaworld by sysaworld

Badlands National Park is situated along the Tornado Alley, the famous area of the United States where tornadoes are most frequent. The weather was very bad during my trip to South Dakota but let me take this great picture with a majestic rainbow at the Cedar Pass.

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.

New on 500px : Chillin on a dirt road by AaronGroen by AaronGroen

Chilling on a dirt road… getting eaten by mosquitoes….
sorry for my made up lyrics but man are the skeeters bad right now from all the flooding! Anyways, this is another SINGLE exposure shot taken the other night west of Sioux Falls, sorry I didn’t check what the nearest town was on this one, I just stopped at a random spot for a couple more quick shots on my way back home.

New on 500px : Barn VIII by AaronGroen by AaronGroen

“Barn VIII” Milky Way stars shine bright over this barn near Canova, South Dakota. This is a SINGLE exposure shot, the light on the grass and barn are actually from my cell phone for a few seconds during the exposure. This area is far far away from big city lights and perfect for astrophotography. This night also had plenty of green airglow as well. I was posting screen shots as I was shooting this, if you are interested in this kind of thing follow me on facebook
