Photography Black Hills shoot.
It’s 1:11 AM and my Photographer business partner and wife, Linda are getting ready to head to our first stop for Photographs of Agostura Lake at the Southern end of the Black Hills. We’ll be making sunrise photos in the areas around the lake before and at sunrise – 6:00 AM.
Photography while cruising in the Black Hills on our third Wedding Anniversary today!
We are eager to get out there and make more photos, since we’ve lost about 10,000 due to failures of five hard drives. We’re not giving up. I used to backup to DVD’s and it took so long to get caught up from ’06 to ’08, I thought mirrored terabyte drives would be a better idea. Hmm, can’t do enough. Here’s a tip: I did recover about 350 GB of photos from one drive, but every photo displayed the dreaded “Can’t read file header” message. I’ll keep you up dated when I find the solution. You don’t want to use a hex editor on every picture, one at a time to strip out the bad data! I know where to go from here, but it’s not the next step to recover those photos, it’s to go take more of them!
We’ve had a midnight snack, fed the dogs, Cedar and Jackie, and we’ve got lots to do to get ready. When we get back we’ll post our photos of Hills City, SD, Angostura, pictures of the Mammoth Site, and a few other areas.
This site which contains the fossils of 55 Mammoths was first discovered in 1974. A local contractor had begun site work for a project in the southern area of the city of Hot Springs. The contractor was removing the top of a hill, when he turned around and saw huge bones sticking up all over the place. There are over 55 Colombian and Wholly Mammoths at this exciting attraction.
When we return tonight we will start uploads of the day’s work to our Photography Galleries at PhotoShelter. If you wish to make purchases, use this coupon code: 429RPS for 35% off until May 15th!
