Drive to Braddock...

March 01, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Took a first trip in both living here in the Dakotas again and with the new camera for a photo shoot. It feels good to get out on the gravel country roads here in the Dakotas again to find places and things I find curious and worthy of some shutter movement on my new Canon 1D Mark III.

I took a drive east on Lincoln road until I came to Hwy 83 and headed south. I found a curious sign that said welcome to Braddock with nothing to be seen from the highway. I was curious and started driving down another beautiful gravel road until I came to a very small but intriguing town called Braddock. Lots of old buildings there for the photographer in me, a cross with the crucifixion of Jesus Christ out in a field and wonderful views over the prairies along the way. Sadly I could not take any of those with all the blowing snow, haze from the overcast clouds and the snow falling in general. There was just not enough distance to take photos of those views this time. I will have to return during the warmer months for that privilege. My trip back home took me along Hazleton Road, which is also gravel, to Hwy 1804 and found a lovely church with a grave yard along its side. 

All in all this was a good first trip to get my hands wet again so to speak. I am so excited to be out doing one of the things I love again and will keep you posted on the future ones as well...
