Ripple in the Heavens

When a strong atmospheric pattern sweeps over, the clouds are shaped into flowing ripples that reverberate across the sky. You can feel the vibrations in the air. The signal of the oncoming storm rises before you and soon the sky will darken in chaos.

Along the Path

On a short stroll through the park today I took some pictures of my favorite subject matter. Trees. Tall, majestic and green, they are an invaluable asset to our lives. As a closeted treehugger, I encourage everyone to go up to the next tree you see, give it a hug, and tell it thank you.

Looking Up Through the Trees

If you are in a wooded area and look up to the sky you see the tops of trees. Staring at them from the bottom up, you get an insignificant feeling. Dwarfed by immense giants of nature, they give off a sense of comfort and shield us in a big leafy cocoon.

Rock Bluffs

These rocks jut out from the hillside adding a surreal dynamic to the forest. They provide a pedestal for nature to stand and look out among creation.

Scenic Route

At the pond there is a narrow path resting between the woods and the water. It’s just wide enough for a car to pass through. Nature has adapted to this by making the trees form a tunnel for us to travel through.

 

Along the Banks of the River

The MacQueen Forest Preserve in Illinois is nestled along the Kishwaukee River and draws life from its waters. Roots of the trees intertwine and dip into the river. It is a wonderful spectacle of nature.
