Chief Crazy Horse memorial

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by catalyst, Jul 19, 2005.

  1. Here are two snaps from the ongoing construction of the large-scale stone sculpture to Chief Crazy Horse, outside Custer, South Dakota.

    The first is the work to-date, and the second shows a blast designed to help articulate his horse's head, right underneath where his outstretched arm and extended fingers will be pointing.

    Both were taken with the D70 and the Sigma 70-200 mm HSM f/2.8 zoom.

    It was an impressive place to practice photography! I hope you like these, and would appreciate your comments postiive and negative.

  2. Cool shots, Catalyst! Any way to provide a sense of scale to these? Like I see that yellow thing at the entrance to the tunnel but not sure what it is. Or are those fences/rails like the normal waist high rails?

    That thing is going to be magnificent when completed!

    Man thats some serious earth (aka rock) work going on there.

    The rockwork looks a tad too sharp, but I like both pics anyway

    thanks !

    Here's link to a shot on the Crazy Horse Memorial website that will give you a little perspective about how big it really is:

    Hi had totally forgotten about that monument. I think that we are planning a motorhome trip to Mount Rushmore and the surrounding area next summer, obviously...we will travel to the Crazy Horse site as well. Thanks for posting the snaps of the area.
