1st Place - The Old Barn with the Butte by April Oedekoven, Rapid City
"The old barn with the butte always reminds me of home and coming home. On the bus, I would pass by it on my trek home from school. Every time I would look behind to catch Bear Butte rising behind the old barn. Some days it was beautiful, some days it was magnificent, and other days it was downright gorgeous. Every day produced something unique and different. On this day, the old barn and Bear Butte have a mysterious look. The thick cloud bank is hiding Bear Butte giving it an eerie glow."

2nd Place - Reflecting Missouri by Andy Ogan, Pierre
"On the causeway to LaFramboise Island in Pierre. Was out doing some family photos for a friend, loved the clouds and still water, so used the time to snap this shot facing west. For some, the river really means home. Boat rides, beach picnics, or my favorite, Zesto lunch on the causeway."

Work

1st Place - Rain or Shine by Erica Harvey, Rapid City
"This past year I worked up at The South Dakota State Railroad Museum, which is right next to the 1880 Train. I had never thought much about trains until this job; over the past months I have gained a huge appreciation for them and our State's railroad history. In this image Scott is coupling the #110 to the cars and preparing for the 1:15pm HIll City departure on Saturday October 3rd, 2015."
