  • My family and I were eating breakfast one spring morning and saw a bunny hop through our yard. We usually don't see a lot of bunnies, because our dog scares them away. I grabbed my dad's camera and I headed to our front yard, making sure I didn't scare the bunny. I laid on the ground and snapped a photo. It looked at me and I quickly snapped another.

  • This is a photo of a Badlands sunset taken last week. Arrived in Wall South Dakota with just enough daylight to capture a few colorful moments. It was a great way to start a vacation, and it made up for the hazy smoke filled skies we would later encounter in Wyoming.
