Thanks for the comments on the Flatlands series. I made those back in 1999 on my way out to teach a workshop at Formulary in Montana. I was back in SD, WY, and MT this summer on another project and wanted to add to the Flatlands work, but weather and climate were completely uncooperative. Skies smoky and hazy and blank, drought-stricken land harsh and dessicated looking. Not one new negative. Makes you all the more appreciative of the times when everything goes right and you can't seem to turn around without finding something to shoot.
