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.

Quiet Country Lane

Quiet Country Lane_edited-1_wm

This country lane is located at Jubilee College State Park just 15 minutes outside of Peoria, Illinois.  Shadowed on the left foreground is a bean field and in the distance – a corn field. The image was shot on an early, partly cloudy, summer evening.

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