Midwest Spring

Amidst the overload at work, I took a brief excursion to Chicago. I needed some well-needed time to spend with family. My brother Devlin took us out to the Indiana Dunes State Park / Beverly Shores area amidst the rain, wind, and cold. However, the rain subsided a bit and we found some really cool nature trails to wander about. Although there were no blue skies for pictures, we focused on the floral, birds, and foliage all around. It was a very peaceful and productive day.

The next day, my other brother took us out to northern Illinois and Wisconsin. The sun was out and we took advantage of it. We spent time in the Chain O’Lakes area for quite awhile, found some good food at a local biker restaurant, and took off to the Kenosha and Lake Geneva areas. We used the full day to capture anything we wished for our cameras.

Sunday was a family day and well worth it.

Here is the gallery of 400+ pics. Some are worked on, some are still in progress. I am still working on my Valley of Fire gallery as well. If you like any of the pictures, PLEASE email me with your feedback.

Bored with watching the NCIS marathon, I went outside for a few minutes with the camera. These are cropped due to the distance. People were busy in the neighborhood, so capturing was quick. As soon as I found a nice spot to start really capturing the birds in better light, people/cars just scared everything away. Such is life.
