That is what I thought as I walked back up the long dirt path to the place where I set up my chair and camera. Off in the middle of nowhere. Half way between Wind Cave and Custer State Park. A quaint little hill overlooking the grassy valley. The sun shining bright as it prepared to set and not a bug around.
I had searched long and hard for the perfect place to sit and watch the sun go down. I don’t know if this was necessarily it. There was a vast amount of acreage in this park, but I did find that it was the best place for me.
During my time in this spot, I saw but three cars and they never bothered me. I had the whole place to myself. It blessed me with so many things that I didn’t really think I’d ever experience. A peace of mind. A clarity. A connection. And the coyotes howling at the moon.
As I was walking up the path, the scene above caught my eye. It reminded me of the perfect little setup that a photographer would use. Most the time I sit on the ground, but this moment wasn’t really about taking pictures. The camera would be set once and the remote would do most of the work. Still, for a moment I felt like a photographer and I think that this is a peaceful pic.
I hope that you have a beautiful day and tomorrow.
