New on 500px : End of the Road by AaronGroen by AaronGroen

Another shot from the storms the other night here in South Dakota. June 16th 2014 7:26pm
This one was just west of the Fairview exit. I had just went by the Canton exit and there was the flipped semi and I had to actually cross about a foot deep water on the interstate and than took the first exit off.

New on 500px : Ride the Lightning by AaronGroen by AaronGroen

Photo taken in last night’s storm June 16th 8:08 pm on 463rd avenue by 290th street gravel. I stopped here for some quick shots because I had a small break in the rain but realized this was a very bad idea when I tried to leave. For a while I thought I was going to have to find the highest ground and wait til morning to try and drive home. It took me over 3 hours to find a way out of this area. Down every turn there was water flooded over the highway and even if I could have made it to the interstate it was closed already because water had even flooded across that as well. On the way here on the interstate I seen a semi flipped over and two cars in the ditch one completely submerged to the roof. Anyways noob lesson for today , do not stop in an area that is flooding to take lightning pics especially if on the way in many spots on the highway were already flooded over because it might keep flooding and leaving debris and washing out every gravel road so you can not get home 😉

New on 500px : Road to Nowhere – air glow by AaronGroen by AaronGroen

“Road to Nowhere – Air Glow” http://ift.tt/12PMe6X
Milky way stars and some green air-glow shine bright over this old back road south of Canova, South Dakota. Google “air glow” for more info on what air glow is but it is basically caused by excited oxygen molecules in the upper atmosphere and solar radiation blah blah blah, whatever it is it looks cool some nights 😉
7 shot panorama taken May 29th 2014, 1:36 am with Canon 6D and 16-35mm L II lens at 15 seconds f2.8 6400iso

I know my last post was a church too but when I went out shooting last night I found myself in this area and said why not. This spot near Canova, South Dakota is a little over an hour drive from my home in Sioux Falls’s light pollution. So the stars are much better here than my last post but I couldn’t push the camera as far as I wanted because of the lights behind this church. I also started a time-lapse of this right after this shot was taken same position I just lowered the iso some for the time-lapse. Managed to get 200+ frames and only one vehicle went by the entire time. This 200+ frame sequence and another 200+ frames from the last meteor shower at a favorite old barn will be in my next video so watch for that coming soon to my facebook page 😉
