Bridge through Illinois River’s bottom land

Walking through the WoodlandThis walking bridge is somewhere around 100-200 yards from the Illinois River and winds along the bottom land…a number of streams leading to the river pass just beneath it.  It’s a peaceful walk which takes a turn toward the river and terminates…the walkway is a few blocks in length. The river is located to the left of the bridge from the vantage point of this image.

First light strikes the Tree tops

The first light of dawn struck the tops of the trees behind our home two days ago making this image possible.  It immediately caught my eye.

This Maple, located at the lower entrance to Grandview Drive in
Peoria Heights Illinois, turns this bright orange each year.
I took this during the fall of 2011.

Backyard in Spring Bloom

Backyard in Spring Bloom

I shot this image early this Spring.  This is our backyard but it could be yours or belong to your neighbor.
