Your support for independent local news is important.

The Source Weekly has been Central Oregon’s locally owned news outlet for over 23 years. We have always been the definition of "support local." Our success in navigating this new world is tied to the success we experience in pulling together for the common good.

Quality local journalism takes a group of dedicated reporters passionate about democracy and open government. This story is the result of our hard work, and in normal times, the result of the support of the advertisers in Central Oregon. In the age of COVID-19, however, that support has taken a hit—but that’s where you come in.

The Traveling Camera: Crazy Horse

Shooting the Crazy Horse monument in South Dakota.

Posted By on Mon, Aug 29, 2011 at 10:43 PM

The Black Hills of South Dakota are a spiritual center for the Lakota people. One of their greatest leaders was the famous warrior, Crazy Horse.

We got a private tour to see the gigantic rock face of the world’s largest sculpture. Thunderhead Mountain, where the gigantic sculpture slowly emerges out of the rock, is famous for its thunderclouds and while shooting the face, clouds seems to appear out of nowhere. I used a circular polarizer filter to darken the blue sky and further dramatize the image. I mirrored the image later in Photoshop.

In terms of theatrics, Crazy Horse Monument beats even Mt. Rushmore.
