Illinois River Valley on a cold Winter’s Day

I shot this image a good many years ago from a Grandview Drive overlook in Peoria Heights, Illinois.  Many of you know this area well – many do not.  Grandview Drive snakes its way for a few miles above the valley floor and the scenery is always worth an image.  You can see for miles standing anywhere along the route of the Drive.  Even having lived less than a mile from this vantage point most of my life I never tire of the vista and the beauty.

I shot this image in December 2013.  If you enlarge the image you’ll get a better view.

A Snowy Morning

About a week ago we received two or three inches of snow.  I grabbed my camera and was about to shoot the image when the car suddenly came into the shot.  Go figure?

I’m back to my Favorite Theme

Well, I tried numerous other themes today and none of them came up to my expectations – for my needs my long-time theme is best.  My right hand menu was all over the place with most of the themes I tried. Hopefully things won’t get goofed up again.  If they do I’ll just keep working until I straighten it out – again.  Thanks for hanging in there with me today.

Soon Fall Color’s will light up the Trees and Woodlands

Maple Fall Image1-8_edited-3

I shot this image years ago and it’s a bit fuzzy.  “My bad.”  I must have been shooting out of one eye! But the color was what got my attention.  “Sometimes a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do.”   I hope to find the tree again this year and shoot a sharper image for you.  Colors should start changing in the Midwest by Mid-October.
