In No Particular Order
As you have come to know, Beautiful Badlands ND is heavy on photographs. Why just write about a beautiful region when you can show it. So, we do. I’ll bet you, too, have taken some of your own favorite images. We tabbed seven locations earlier this year to recommend you photograph. Since the Badlands are bigger than seven places, it’s tough to pick your favorite images, isn’t it. But it’s fun to look back and plan the next year. (Speaking of planning the next year, here are 5 Badlands attractions to put on your 2021 calendar.)
So, from 2020, these are some of my favorite images from the interior and from the National Park. As you will see, I’m attracted by leading lines in a scene, those elements that draw your eye from one part of an image to another. That’s why favorite images from 2020 probably have good leading lines. They’re everywhere in the western part of the state.
I also like asymmetrical balance between light and dark, rough and smooth or cold and hot. So, you will see, in these images from 2020, there are two sides of every photo that are unlike each other.
