Boquet of Wildflowers from the Black
Hills

I have a long backlog of photographs from this past summer that I am beginning to work my way through and will be showcasing the best of over the next few weeks. I have a goal of attempting a showing of my photography in the Sioux Falls area sometime in the next nine months. I have had friends over the years doing showings at places like Black Sheep Coffee as well as at my alma matre, Augustana College and I hope to select a few prints to really work through in photoshop, professionally print, matte, frame, and display. The above photograph is a bouquet of wildflowers that I gathered along the Hell Canyon Trail in South Dakota for my girlfriend. This shot is taken indoors with on-camera flash at night. The flash readily illuminated the bright blue tones of the flowers while giving the room a nice black backdrop.
