Mount Rushmore at Dawn

Mount Rushmore at Dawn

We got up at 4:00 a.m. to drive out to Mount Rushmore for sunrise a little after 5:30. In August, Theodore Roosevelt has a shadow on his face, but the light is beautiful on a clear day. I used a long lens for this photo to reduce the distortion caused by a wider lens.
