Just a couple of winter scenes near home.
Thanks for stopping by.
The pandemic has left what usually is the most crowded spot in Chicago, empty and a bit sad. There was a small crowd gathered with appropriate social distancing so that The Bean can remain COVID free. So far, it’s working.
I’m catching up with a bunch of images that I have taken over the last month. December 19 was a beautiful day, so I took the Yamaha out and enjoyed a ride.
Just a few images of light and color. November is being rather kind by sharing mild temperatures. The Illinois River and my home are the locations for these images. Thanks November!
Always enjoy an opportunity to return to Devil’s Lake State Park for our annual staff retreat.
the beautiful sadness of fall colors singing proudly before cascading to the earth creating a carpet of emerald crimson and lemon to welcome the solace and solitude of winter the humility of each season is the common theme of the songs they sing each season happily surrenders its beauty to the charm and grace of the next and so all creation sings to the Creator let us do the same welcome the constant change that this life brings and be alive to all that must die within us and be willing to surrender to all that must be reborn through confession forgiveness and the grace and mercy of our Lord "Yes, grass withers and flowers fade, but the word of our God endures forever." * and He is light and He is love * Isaiah 40:8
Spent some time with family at Van Buren State Park in Michigan. The park is beautiful with camping for giant RV’s and tents, and it is located close to beautiful South Haven, MI.
And I thought these were cool when they were put together! Took a nice long ride on the Yamaha yesterday and stumbled across this… amazing…
I would not call the Illinois River picturesque, however, with a little help from the sun and some clouds, it dresses up nicely!
