Truly one of the top spots in Sioux Falls to capture a stunning image.

Add the fluffy snowflakes and this shot could be out of a magazine… its just perfect!

Okay… I know… its another bridge with a fresh layer of powder… but I’m telling you… that is the beauty of being a photographer in Sioux Falls! You get views like this every year for at least a few months out of the year! Be like Brian Larson and take the trek and see what magic you can work with your camera. And its not just he bridge Legacy Park has many different perspectives to capture breath taking images, there’s even an easy access to get close the water (BE CAREFUL!!!!).

Not only is this kiddo having the time of his life!!! The shot is perfect! No cheesy smiles, staged looks, or cliche captures – this is pure joy, all natural, and just stunning photography and you can capture shots just like Roxann Montagne did down any country… or city road on a snowy day in Sioux Falls (be sure to look both ways and keep a look-out! SAFETY FIRST!) This young man slipped his coat off just for a second, Roxann caught the snow as it was falling, and together they created a memory that will last… not too shabby for a simple capture down a country road!

Good Earth State Park is literally acres upon acres of amazing vantage points and beautiful settings! Even I can capture a breath taking image at this location, and that is saying something!
