Photographer's Note

This picture taken at the entrance to Mt. Rushmore monument in Keystone, South Dakota. I do many of my photo safaris in September / October. During these months, tourists are gone; hotels are empty ; air is cool; high contrast in everything and more importantly in South Dakota, the early morning and late afternoon lighting is amazing. This shot was captured about 0530 am; the sun is more pink than red although these concrete pillars took on a very red hue for about 5 minutes. Donít spend too much time shooting these because the Ďheadsí have a soft pink glow for a few minutes before the harsh white granite look prevails.
