2013 10-10 Change of Seasons by Watertown, South Dakota, photographer Scott Shephard

The Lake Area Technical Institute Photo/Media class took its annual field trip to Sica Hollow, near Sisseton, South Dakota yesterday. Finding a perfect day near mid October in South Dakota is difficult but we got lucky. With little wind, blue skies and temperatures in the low 70s, it’s hard not to think that life is good.

We don’t get a riot of color in the fall as some states that I’ve been to do, but if you look, you can find good examples of the flamboyance of fall. I guess these leaves are in the throes of death. But they are going out in style.

  1. Although I did like the photo you posted today, what I really liked were the words you used to describe the leaf (leaves) in the photo. You did have a good say at Sica Hollow. You never know how many are left.

    • Thanks, CRE. I enjoy most of October, but I am a bit envious of people like you, who pack it up and head to warmer climes. Have a good winter in Arizona!
