The Traveling Camera: Crazy Horse 

Shooting the Crazy Horse monument in South Dakota.

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.
