Male Cardinal in Study

In January 2014 I posted this image and thought it would be a good way to finish out 2017 – many of you really enjoyed his peaceful posture and apparent disregard for the winter weather.

Two Female Cardinals resting between feedings

I took this image a couple of years ago.  Did a bit of work in Aviary to sharpenen it best I could.  It’s still a bit fuzzy looking due to falling snow.

Illinois River Valley on a cold Winter’s Day

I shot this image a good many years ago from a Grandview Drive overlook in Peoria Heights, Illinois.  Many of you know this area well – many do not.  Grandview Drive snakes its way for a few miles above the valley floor and the scenery is always worth an image.  You can see for miles standing anywhere along the route of the Drive.  Even having lived less than a mile from this vantage point most of my life I never tire of the vista and the beauty.

Winter’s Quiet

Solitude in the Woodland for PhotoNet_edited-1_wm

I shot this image in December 2010 and posted it at that time – under a different title.  Time certainly goes by.  For my followers and friends who have never seen it.

Winter will soon be here

This is what it looks like.  I posted this a year ago but thought it might be something for my new followers and friends to consider.
