The Little Missouri River bottomland in the North section of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota from the Oxbow Overlook on the Scenic Drive. This day was a gift. The temperatures where in the 70’s (F) in late September. A good 20 degrees above normal for the North section of the park. This is about as colorful as autumn gets in the Badlands of North Dakota.
When photographing landscapes, you need to use f/16 or better to make sure you get everything in the focus plane from in close to the far away horizon. Using the Nikon D700 digital SLR camera with the 28-300 VR Zoom Lens attached, I got into a low shooting position and took several photos from this outlook. I was not feeling very well that day which is my only excuse for not doing a full panoramic set of photos. 😦
