Sunset over the Missouri River in South Dakota

The Missouri River

 

Indeed the river is a perpetual gala, and boasts each month a new ornament. — (Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nature)

 

Though he was not speaking of the Missouri, Emerson was right on with this statement. Nothing changes with the seasons like a river. To try and capture those changes in photos is a joy.
