When people think of South Dakota, usually it is Mt Rushmore or the Crazy Horse Memorial carvings into the sides of a mountain. However, South Dakota offers the photographer an amazing opportunity for incredible scenery, and AMAZING LIGHT! 
Our tour is set for mid-June, which is PRIME photography time for awesome summer storm light that rolls in and then rolls out. In the Black Hills, although we will find tourists, we will also find amazing light and opportunities. Situated at a higher elevation, the weather is warm but not hot and we find this is an excellent time to be here. Temperatures are usually in the ’70s!
