Rails across the Illinois

Rails across the Illinois

One final photo from my short trip last month along the Fox River, which empties into the Illinois River. Here we see river ice as it landed on the bank with this awesome vertical-lift bridge for rail traffic in the background. Eaves, Chris (Feb. 13, […]

Winter on the Farm

Winter on the Farm

Frozen fields, snow on the roofs, barren trees. I love scenes like this one. A keen eye might say that I’m over-processing the photograph, but the white glow on the trees isn’t from post-processing, it’s from the ice storm the night before. The trees all […]

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.

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 […]

Snowy Trees

Snowy Trees

Ice storms make for pretty photos. They also make for long power outages and ample chaos, but let’s focus on the positives here. Eaves, Chris (Feb. 13, 2019). Snowy Trees [Photograph]. Yorkville, Illinois. Shot on a Canon 6D at 36mm, 1/400 sec., f10 at ISO50

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 […]

Frozen Seed

Frozen Seed

The creamy bokeh on this Canon lens just melts away the background. I also like how the dark background and white horizon roughly match the snow and seed pods. I tinkered with this one in black and white, but I really like the warm browns. […]

Barn in Winter

Barn in Winter

I love a good-old-fashioned red barn on a snowy day. Nearby there are nearly 400 acres of horse pastures and trails that are soon to become part of the Cook County Forest Preserve system.

Spring Road

Spring Road

We’re entering that time of year when Spring feels very, very far away… Eaves, Chris (Feb. 26, 2008). Spring Road [Photograph]. Oak Brook, Illinois. Shot on a Canon Rebel XTi at 60mm, 1/4000 sec., f2.8, ISO100
