Amazing Video Shows Time-Lapse South Dakota Skies

Horizons - South Dakota skies

Photographer Randy Halverson is a South Dakota native, and he knows that sometimes the landscape can be a bit repetitive. He’s made an amazing time-lapse video that captures the beauty of the skies of South Dakota, Wyoming, and the Badlands, and he’s called it “Horizons.”

As a North Dakota native, I’ve heard every complaint about the landscape of the northern plains. You can go for miles without seeing anything. I remember a time when my husband and I took a trip to the Badlands, and when we got out of the car and looked over the hills, he said to me, “Are we still in North Dakota?” He was taken with what he was seeing.

That’s where Halverson comes in, capturing the beauty that can be found in that region of the country. He says:

If you have ever been in a wide open landscape the most interesting thing isn’t necessarily the landscape itself, but what you see coming over the horizon. Growing up in South Dakota the landscape itself can be beautiful at times, but that doesn’t compare to what the sky can do, especially at night. Combine that with the landscape, and it makes for great photo opportunities.

Bear McCreary, the greatly talented composer of music for shows like Battlestar Galactica and The Walking Dead, helped out with the music you hear in the clip. The vocals come courtesy of Brendan McCreary and his band Young Beautiful in a Hurry, and the song is called “I Forever.”
