“Hank of The Badlands”

This is one of my favorite images from a trip my husband and I took to South Dakota in September 2011. While visiting The Badlands, we stayed at a family owned bed and breakfast called Circle View Guest Ranch. Hank is not only the Circle View family pet, but more importantly the ranch “guard” dog. He kept the unwelcome critters away from the ranch, making us feel safe and comfortable.

This photo was taken the last morning of our stay when I got up early to watch and photograph the sunrise. Shortly after the sun came up, Hank was once again on duty.  This shot is not as perfectly composed as I would have liked, but the opportunity presented itself unexpectedly and it was fleeting. I still love it.

If you ever have the chance to visit The Badlands, consider staying at the Circle View Guest Ranch (  You won’t be disappointed.
