Badlands in Winter

(Images from Badlands National Park, SD, January 2001)





stark beauty of nothing
moving except far-off deer—
spare trees in storm

I've always been drawn to the word Badlands, Art, and I've tried to imagine this geography.

These photos give me a better sense of that territory. Thanks.

Elisabeth—

Thanks. It's an evocative word, ennit? The geography is amazing, and in real life it extends all the way to horizon in spots. The photos can show the patterns and shapes, but the reality is too immense to frame.

David-Glen—

Thanks. Always a work in progress.
