Antelope skies

South Dakota Highway 34 between Pierre and Sturgis is a great spot to find pronghorn antelope in wide open prairie spaces. Cloud formations can really help accentuate a photo when you aren't able to get close enough for a more typical wildlife portrait.

Nothing too tricky here about the photography other than to let the sky be the feature and the critters just add scale to the big scene. I waited for a cloud shadow to drift over the antelope so they would be darker silhouettes against the white cloud background.
