I'm a fine art / commercial photographer from Wisconsin. I'm driving out to the Badlands/ Black Hills August 16th to the 22nd. I'll be boon docking from my truck while I am out there. I was hoping to join this forum to get some help in navigation of the area. I'm mostly looking at doing some night time long exposure photography and a stary sky time lapse video, 300 shots of the Milky Way moving across the sky with I'm hoping a majestic rock formation off in the distance.
I planned on driving the typical loop the first day just to check things out but I prefer to find an angle that most people don't get to see, I'm not the touristy type. I'm not looking for any extreme off road trails as I'm just driving my Ram 1500 4x4. So... off the beaten path for sure, but preferably not rock climbing or seeing how deep of a stream crossing I can accomplish...
So far the only place I have been able to find with Google maps is Sheep Mountain Rd. seems like a good place to get away from people and lights but not sure how good the scenery is there for photography. I would really appreciate any tips anyone could give me of places to go trails I would be able to drive on and best places to set up my gear! Hell, while I'm out if you wanted to meet up in the area I'd even buy ya a beer
Thanks in advance for any help you can send this Wisconsinite!
