Colorful Badlands Sunset

Today’s post features a couple of sunset images as the sun dropped towards the western horizon, over the Badlands NP of South Dakota.  I have never seen a “bad” sunset here … ok, if it is really cloudy it might not be good sunset material.  But typically, I can always count on some really nice sunsets here. Here are a couple of images I captured in September, during my visit to the park:

Coming up, more Badlands images, including some more wildlife and some night sky images of this incredible and open area.
