… bighorn sheep chillin’ in Badlands National Park.

This shot, I don’t know why, does a fantastic job suggesting the landscape goes on like this forever. Perhaps it’s the small size/scale of the sheep, or you shooting across a chasm, but I’m taken in by the foreverness of it all. Would that be a tool we could consciously use to set up our photos?
And my mind wanders … I see the patch of green to the left and mid-height, and I hear the first sheep saying to the other, “So, where do you want to go to lunch today?”

Thanks. That’s what the Badlands generate as a primary feeling — the horizon is far away, and there’s a lot of bad land before you get to it. I have more images coming that express that.
