The family and I just got back from a trip to western North Dakota and South Dakota. It was my first visit to Mount Rushmore. Some folks from the Fargo-Moorhead area may gasp at that, but having grown up in Tennessee (mostly), it wasn’t a particularly convenient travel destination for my family.
Of course, I took my camera along. It was fun shooting because our route from Fargo to Medora, N.D. to Mount Rushmore and back to Fargo offered a wide range of landscape to capture. I’ll be sharing more of those photos here over the coming days. (Actually, I already posted a few of the images here.)
Today, I start with three different looks at Mount Rushmore (I’ll likely add a fourth later). I was looking forward to photographing the monument, but it’s also because it’s a subject that has been photographed so very much. After all, it’s visited by nearly three million people each year. How can you possibly catch something new?
Well, I don’t know if I really got anything new, but maybe I got a couple of shots that are at least a little different that most. Let me know what you think.
Thanks for taking the time to visit and look at these images. If you enjoyed them, feel free check out more of my images here.
