Ginko leaves blanket a tree

Years ago, I worked a NIU (Northern Illinois University) Every year for about one day each autumn, this sole ginko tree would shed its leaves gently overnight, and they would settle around the base of the tree, swaddling it in a blanket of greens & yellows. Taken with a Hasselblad 500 C/M with 100mm f/3.5 Planar lens on Kodachrome 64.

Gnarly bark leaning to the morning sun

A super-tele shot (1000mm) right at sunrise of a stand of elm trees as they seem to lean to greet the day along the Rock river.

Amongst autumn sun

Sometimes, it's just nice to explore the midday light as milkweed pods burst forth in the golden autmn sun. This image was made during the annual native prairie seed harvest at the Nygren Wetlands Preserve in Roscoe, Illinois.
