Hello from South Dakota

I have already learned a lot from this forum, lens articles, photo challenges, etc. Finally decided to sign up. I am new to digital photography, bought a K3 last summer. (from B&H, glad to see they are a sponsor) I used to shoot a K1000 some 20 or 30 years ago when I did a lot of whitewater canoeing and backcountry skiing. The photo challenges look like lots of fun, I submitted an entry in the insect closeup challenge and look forward to doing more. I was at Badlands NP yesterday, here is a photo from the yellow-mounds area of the park.

Welcome to the forum, I can see from your image why it's called the Badlands, it looks to be a very harsh environment indeed.

Welcome to the forum....
I've never seen the badlands green like that, but I usually go in August or late July.

Welcome aboard!

It's really hard to gather any sense of scale in those badlands pictures, I'd like to visit someday to get an idea myself.
