Rattlesnake Spring / Badlands - ABDSP

Went out to cache water for the 2014 Bighorn Sheep Count last weekend and spent the night in the Badlands. The spring looked good and we didn't see any more dead sheep so that is a great thing. Gorgeous weather. More film fun, all photos from Olympus OM-2S and Ektar 100 film.

With the amount of booze I drank that night I am surprised I even found Polaris, poor composition aside I am liking the film long exposure star trails, I did not have to edit this photo at all

Early morning reflections, what I saw when I "woke" up

The Ektar film makes my truck look great, where are all the pinstripes?? Love the polarizer vignetting

This is a great shot of the lower portion of Rattlesnake Canyon, this is where we freestyle'd down a loose rocky ridge into the canyon
