Anniversary Across America (Part 2) - North to Sioux Falls

Leaving our friends at Whiteman AFB, Rose and I headed north to spend the night in Omaha. With a long day of driving ahead of us, we got up early and started driving toward South Dakota. For those of you who haven't experienced the part of our nation that this drive includes, let me describe it to you. Long. Straight. Flat. Corn. Wind Turbine. Repeat.

After driving around flooded out highways using back country farm roads (the Missouri River was extremely high last summer) - we finally arrived in Sioux Falls, SD in time for a late lunch.

Sioux Falls is by far the prettiest waterfall I've seen within any city limits. (with the possible exception of Niagara, if in fact, it's not squarely on the international boundary line thus making it ineligible) With the excess rainfall it was dark and muddy, but it was no less impressive. The muddy water turned to chocolate milk during the long exposure I took, giving the falls and the river a Willy Wonka chocolate-river feel.

Setup: Nikon D3, Nikon 24-70mm (56mm), 1s @ f/5.6, ISO 100

Love that picture. How cool do the falls look with that long exposure!
