Fall Arrives Early in Central Illinois
It was just last Saturday, that summer continued to persist with temps in the 90s and the usual high humidity. But a cool front came through Saturday night/Sunday, such that Monday – Labor Day – started refreshingly cool and brisk. And it brought with it the type of sky I cherish for photography – bright blue with fluffy clouds. Just dazzling. And, an afternoon with no pending chores to keep me from heading out of town to see what sights I might find. I headed several miles west to get some views of the countryside.
Drying corn nearly ready for harvest under a glorious sky.
A look down a gravel road toward "infinity and beyond" with the sun illuminating the corn on the north side of the road, leaving the south in shadow.
This old oak on a curve in the road is a favorite subject I have shot before. Today is exceptional.
