The Good, the Bad and the Beautiful: Guy Tal Captures Fleeting Moment of Color in America’s Badlands

Photographer Guy Tal proves that patience pays with these stunning images of the Badlands, an area known for its unforgiving climate and generally uninhabitable landscape. Indomitable Mother Nature has fought back however, periodically carpeting the sun-scorched soils with an oasis of yellow and purple petals. The flowers have adapted to the aridity, now managing to bloom with just the slightest hint of moisture, and here they are captured in all their epic, and all-too-rare, glory.
