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.

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.
