Shining agriculture

For those of us who live in the Great Plains, mid-summer means fields and fields of corn and grain growing under big wide-open skies.

Last night I took advantage of our recent nice weather and wandered some gravel roads between Pierre and Onida admiring farmer's handiwork.

BankWest hosting photo contest

In honor of South Dakota's 125th anniversary celebration this year, BankWest is holding a photo contest where you could win $125.

The contest is hosted on the BankWest Facebook page, which you will need to "like" to participate.

Show Your Community Pride is the theme of the contest, so summer is a perfect time to be capturing those town celebrations, parades, community band concerts, etc.

Mid-summer eagles

Bald eagles are a fairly common site along the Missouri River in South Dakota during the winter months, but I was a bit surprised to come across twin eagles near the Twin Bridges southeast of Pierre last Friday.

Super Moon Trucker

Saturday, July 12, 2014 was one of several "super moons" this year where the moon is closer and larger than normal.

I caught this trucker west-bound and down near Kennebec on Interstate 90 as the "super moon" rose above him.


Also, I think I just coined a new band name with this post title.
