Back to my recent trip to New York for the next few posts. Just love the wind, the clouds, the endless waves and the distant edge of the sea...
Ice fog + frigid cold air + the morning sun + our beautiful town = a spectacular morning!
Just a couple of winter scenes near home.
Thanks for stopping by.
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!
Starved Rock State Park, in Oglesby, IL, is filled with hiking trails, canyons, high cliff views of the Illinois River and, in the Fall, the beauty of all those fallen leaves. My colleagues and I go to this park for our annual hiking trip to celebrate birthdays on our staff. We enjoyed a cool, beautiful day! Thanks for stopping buy.
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
I would not call the Illinois River picturesque, however, with a little help from the sun and some clouds, it dresses up nicely!
Took a short ride with rain to the north, and rain to the south. I was able to stay in the middle and enjoy the beautiful Midwest sky. Thanks for stopping by.
