I have made several trips over the years to document areas in the Dakotas where, to put it simply, water just started to rise in the past 20 years and won’t stop. It is heartbreaking for those folks who own land and farms now under water, but for others, like fisherman, it is a paradise.

Regardless, it makes for some incredibly surreal scenes, especially with a big night sky filled with the Milky Way.
