Photographer's Note


Custer State Park
the Black Hills
South Dakota

The Black Hills of my home state of South Dakota are one of my favorite places .. Custer State Park is on of my favorite places in the Hills ... a place where you can escape the tourist centers and find the natural soul of the place ...

My first day of vacation in the Hills this august I got up to take a sunrise drive through Custer State Park .. and after a beautiful walk around Sylvan Lake the rest of my sunrise morning was drowned in a summer rain .. until I reached this place.

Forest fires are a common occurrence in the Hills. When the rain relented I pulled over at this picnic area and overlook and found the forest regenerating from a fire ..

I am in a time of tremendous transition in my own life .. one where the outcome is not certain .. a little hope here .. the sun always rises .. the world is reborn ..
