Harney Peak

I recently had a client contact me about a photo of the fire tower at the top of Harney Peak.
This is probably my favorite hike in the South Dakota Black Hills (sadly, I haven’t had the chance to hike very many so my favorite may change in the future).
Harney Peak stands 7,242 feet above sea level and is the highest point between the Pyrenees in Europe and the Rockies.  
When I shot this view of the tower it was around noon and I hadn’t indented to use it to sell. However, adding a B&W filter to the image creates some sweet contrast! I’ve discovered that mid-day white light shooting can be very beneficial for B&W photography.
