A view of my world in Central Illinois and places we go.

A Photo-Safari Return to Champaign

After visiting the Emiquon for the sunrise, I took a leisurely drive on a winding trip through the countryside on my return home. As the afternoon progressed, the light kept improving and it was fun to stop along the road wherever I might be, jump out, snap a few pics, and move on. It made for a very long day, but I felt photographically “juiced.” I came upon an small cemetery north of Lewistown with many markers from the mid-1800’s. Lewistown’s county courthouse is grand – I’ve featured it previously. Illinois is deservedly regarded as a flat state (see my Red Barn photo), but there are many areas that have a very rolling topography. It was a fine afternoon to capture some of it.

    • Thanks, Sara! Am currently in Santa Fe, NM and hope to post some pics from here. Would you believe it, though, that it is raining today?
