Fall Colors along the Fox River

Fall Colors along the Fox River

Coming around the bend, I found this tree overhanging the bank and nicely framing the view.

Foggy Fox River Valley

Foggy Fox River Valley

Twas a beautiful morning along the Fox River Valley today, and I couldn’t resist a few photos of my favorite tree. Here’s an in-the-field version from the camera to my phone. 1/200 F14 ISO100 at 105mm on Oct. 23, 2021 in Carpentersville, Ill.

Around and Around

Around and Around

I’m taking a posting break this week as I work on images from two walkabouts I took last week. Here’s a shot from earlier this winter. It snowed this past weekend, so it’s still relevant, at least here in Chicagoland. Eaves, Chris (Jan. 25, 2020). […]

Tree in the Fox

Tree in the Fox

Photo no. 13 in my new 14 image series. Several of the images in this series have been along the Fox River, and today I’m posting a proper photo of the river. Eaves, Chris (May 20, 2019). Tree in the Fox [Photograph]. Dundee Township, Ill. […]

Fox, Ice, Trees.

Fox, Ice, Trees.

The trees look like something from a dream as the sun shimmers off the ice-covered landscape. The brutal cold of the day made for some frozen fingers, but the ice-storm from the morning made for views that the camera just can’t do justice.

Frozen Forest along the Fox

Frozen Forest along the Fox

This little forest preserve along the Fox River offers beautiful views and plenty of nice walking and biking trails. Eaves, Chris (Feb. 13, 2019). Frozen Forest along the Fox. [Photograph]. Batavia, Illinois. Shot on a Canon 6D at 17mm, 1/200 sec., f9.0 at ISO50

Winter on the Fox River

Winter on the Fox River

I consider March still a part of winter in Chicago. Here’s a photo from last month after another lovely “wintery mix” storm dropped freezing rain and snow on us. Eaves, Chris (Feb. 13, 2018). Winter on the Fox River [Photograph]. Batavia, Illinois. Shot on a […]

No Fishing

No Fishing

Today’s post is a bridge between two series — the final from a walkabout in sub-zero weather and the first in a small bridge series that kicks off in a couple days. One advantage of shooting in bitterly cold weather is that most people are inside staying warm, so you can get some nice, vacant shots (if that’s your thing).

Pylon

Pylon

Another photo from that cold January day before the Arctic blast fully hit us. The ice started forming around the pylon for the pedestrian bridge over the Fox River. The full-color version of this photo is nearly black & white already, with the only colors […]

Fly you fools!

Fly you fools!

The strength of the goose’s wings is in full display here as it launches itself into the air. The other honkers would shortly follow suit. Eaves, Chris (Jan. 26, 2019). Fly you fools! [Photograph]. Algonquin, Illinois. Shot on a Canon 6D at 300mm, 1/400 sec., f5.6, ISO50. […]

Wait up!

Wait up!

Before the bottom dropped out and the Arctic cold settled over the Midwest, I grabbed the camera and went for a stroll in the relative warmth of 3°F weather. And that brought me, yet again, to the Fox River, this time over in Algonquin, Illinois.

Fox Stack

Fox Stack

This smokestack on the Fox River hints at the decades of industry and prosperity the Fox River brought to the entire Fox Valley region. Eaves, Chris (Sept. 7, 2015). Fox Stack [Photograph]. West Dundee, Illinois. Shot on a Canon 6D at 50mm, 1/125 sec., f18, […]

The Fox

The Fox

A view from the middle of the Fox River, taken on a waterproof disposable camera that was then left in the glove box of my car for several years before being processed.
