I took the backroads from #BeachND to go to #MarmarthND back in July. I found Alpha, ND, Carlye, MT then found my way onto ND Old Highway 16, a now gravel road that curves through some beautiful #badlands. As I approached hiway 12, I decided to turn right, just to see what was that direction. The setting sun was diffused it to a beautiful yellow-orange, welcoming the lone bicyclist to #NorthDakota. #sunset #ndlegendary #roadtrip #northdakotaliving #midwest #capturenorthdakota #road #bicycle #summer #backroads #nd #landscape #offthebeatenpath #wanderlust #explorend #westernnd #sunsets at Marmarth, North Dakota

The Bison Rut. @theodorerooseveltnps See the full 6 minute video at www.kellywicksphotography.com/videos I forgot instagram vids are only 1 minute... oops! Most wildlife videos have the best rut fights, but they arent always full of action. I've seen some not so spectacular challenges... this is one of them. The Challenger and The Champion do fight, but it is after a bit of sizing up. #bison #rut #wildlife #video #nd #wildlifephotography #wildlifevideos #northdakota #ndlegendary #Nature #naturephotography #findyourpark #nps101 #nps #nationalmammal #badlands #animalbehavior at Theodore Roosevelt National Park

August 11th, 12th and 13th are the estimated peak night for the #perseids meteor shower. There are multiple meteor showers going on at the moment, but the Perseids are the best to be seen at the moment. If your lucky enough to not have any imcoming clouds, why not get outside and look Northward. :) #mtstateparks #exploremt #outside #mtstateparks #Nature #stars #mysemt #meteor #montana #montanamoment #darksky #nightphotography #night #5billionstarhotel #embracethenight #southeastmontana #astrophotography at Medicine Rocks State Park

Sunset on the Badlands. A spur of the moment decision, had me turning back and driving up to Sheep Mountain. Arriving there just in time for some perfect lighting and a great view of the Stronghold Unit. This print is limited to 50, either through my website (link on bio, under landscapes) or by directly contacting me. #hifromsd #badlandsnps #badlands #explore #southdakota #Nature #natgeotravel #exploresd #natgeoyourshot #nps #findyourpark #goldenhour #instagood #canonusa #canonphotos #wilderness #pastel #landscape #beboundless #canon_photos #landscapephotography #photooftheday #wanderlust Canon 7dii, 24mm, 1/4, F11, ISO 100 at Badlands National Park

The more remote the location, the better for viewing the night sky! This was one of a few test shots I did with the #canon24105, I wanted to see how the #milkyway would look at 24mm instead of my usual 10mm on the 7Dii. I was happy with the results. #onlyinSEMT #southeastmontana #montana #ekalakamontana #milkywaychasers #milkywaygalaxy #milkywaychasers #canonphoto #darksky #stars #nightphotography #astrophotography at Carter County, Montana

A restless night of waiting for day break, gave rise to a beautiful #sunrise at #badlandsnps. The geology of Badlands NP of South Dakota are unlike any seen in Montana or North Dakota. The ridges and valleys carved into the landscape are wonderful, watching as the light and shadows play in the golden light. #hifromsd #badlands #southdakota #findyourpark #naturephotography #nature #landscapephotography #natgeoyourshot #natgeotravel #goodmorning #goldenhour #wanderlust #outside #exploresd #weekend #photooftheday #igsunrise #canonphoto #canon #nationalparkgeek #nationalpark #nps at Badlands National Park

The backroads of Montana have some pretty sights, that few dare to adventure down. The Ekalaka Hills and surrounding Custer Gallatin National Forest areas, are a wonderful sight to see, rising from the plains! #onlyinSEMT #southeastmontana #mt #montana #mysemt #montanamoment #wanderlust #custernationalforest #ekalakamontana #backroads #discovertheroad #sunset #explore #discovertheforest #canonphoto #canon #outside at Carter County, Montana

The Badlands of South Dakota do not dissapoint. I arrived just in time to watch the sunset, casting its warm colors across the landscape. This was a trip I put off for too long, but is well worth seeing again.

An #AmericanAvocet, feeding during the golden morning hour. #coolfacts : โ— In response to predators, the American Avocet sometimes issues a series of call notes that gradually changes pitch, simulating the Doppler effect and thus making its approach seem faster than it actually is. โ— Nesting American Avocets aggressively attack predators, sometimes physically striking Northern Harriers or Common Ravens. #audobon #usfws #nwr #wildliferefuge #mt #nemontana #bestbirds #best_birds #igbirds #tweetsuites #pocket_birds #nutsaboutbirds #shorebird #wildlife #wildlifewednesday #wildlifephotography #birdphotography at Medicine Lake National Wildlife Refuge

#northdakota maybe booming with the #bakkenoilfield , but they also have several #windfarm's that are in place. I found this one in southwest North Dakota, just after sunset. #windpower #renewableenergy #wind #windmill #windfarm #nodak #Nature #renewable #landscape #bluehour #pastel #wheatfield #ndlegendary #canonphotos #capturenorthdakota at North Dakota

My usual attempts to photograph wild raptors have left me disappointed as the flighty birds take off. I was extremely lucky with this Swainson's Hawk, as it posed long enough for me to get some great photos! #usfws #wildliferefuge #wildlife #raptor #nemontana #elite_raptors #sunrise #montanamoment #canon #canonphotos #naturephotography #natgeoyourshot #wildlifephotography #wildlifewednesday #beboundless #bestbirds #wildlifeonearth #bbcearth #swainsonshawk #buteoswainsoni #photooftheday #yourshotphotographer at Medicine Lake National Wildlife Refuge

I've been wanting to get some good photographs of Brush Lake State Park in the very far #nemontana for a while now. This past Saturday I decided to head that way, I caught the sunset and a few other surprises while I was out there. It was a clear, moonless night which made for a great time to do some #startrails. Unknown to me the #aurora kicked up a bit during the night as I slept. It was a great surprise seeing the green streaks as I reviewed the photos Sunday morning! This is about 5 hours of about 251 images. The green light is from the #northernlights, theres a highway north of the lake and the park campground is to the right, where all the lights are at. #montanamoment #darksky #night #montana #stars #startrailchasers #northernlights #starstax #lake #nightphotography #astrophotography #5billionstarhotel #palebluedot at Brush Lake State Park

The fire may have stopped, but thats no reason not to visit the Burning Coal Vein area! Some great sunrises/sunsets and dark sky to watch the stars at night make it a great place to visit. Plus its the end or start to the legendary Maah Dah Hey Trail! #northdakota #ndlegendary #northdakotalife #sunrise #capturenorthdakota #landscape #badlands #grasslands #explorend #littlemissourigrasslands #outside #medorand #dickinsonnd #rei1440 #savethemdh #maahdaahhey #hike #landscapephotography #pastel at Amidon, North Dakota
