Winter in the Black Hills (10 images)
Heavy snow. Temperature -10F. Howling winds. Winter in the Black Hills of South Dakota - specifically a long weekend at the end of the year. We were practically the only humans in Custer State Park, but the weather conditions didn't faze the wildlife there. In fact they seemed unconcerned with our presence, and we were able to approach most of them safely, and with telephoto lenses, fairly closely.
