The name for this photo was incited by Jordan Imhoff a year or two ago. I was like, “ah yes, splendid wordplay my good sir!” and we put it in the cooker. A couple weeks ago Jeff Meyer and I were up in South Dakota photographing cattle, and found ourselves right at the edge of the badlands. We looked at each other and were like, “well, no better time to get that background plate shot!” A couple weeks later we added Darby to the mix and here is the result.
