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.

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.

The tops of the bunkers are covered in earth and natural foliage. Climbing to the top reveals a nice vista of the restored tallgrass prairie—complete with bison—that is now part of the National Parks system.

The final photo in my new image series. Insofar as I know, the building above is the former power building for the Elgin State Hospital, which opened in 1872 as the Northern Illinois Hospital and Asylum for the Insane. The long-exposure gives the foreground a […]

The Old AE & FRE Line

The Old AE & FRE Line

Photo no. 12 in my new 14 image series.

Just your run-of-the-mill winter scene with deer prints and footprints. Well, except for that weird fat rut running down the middle of the trail. The snow that day was that horrid kind of slush that is impossible to walk in with boots and snowshoes alike. But the person having the worst of it was the fat-tire cyclist leaving behind the single rut. I met up with him about an hour later, and he was exhausted from the experience.

B&W Studies, No. 5

Photo no. 5 in my new 14 image series. For a moment here we’re going to hop a few states south for a shot of northwest Arkansas. Those of you who follow me know I love a good S-curve in photography. It should be not […]

B&W Studies, No. 4

Photo no. 4 in my new 14 image series.

I like how the red filter gives the sky and clouds instant drama and contrast. The clouds didn’t last long that day and were gone by the time I wrapped up shooting.
