Todd Sherlock calls this photo, taken in late October at Herrick Lake Forest Preserve, "Autumn Dance." "I pushed the colors up a little," he says, "but I tried to leave them pretty much as they were."
About this Article
Todd Sherlock was out for a walk, just getting a little exercise, in late October at Herrick Lake Forest Preserve near Wheaton. He already had taken several pictures and was thinking of heading home when something in the lake caught his eye. "It was real windy and the algae was swirling and the leaves were blowing off the trees into the blue water," he says. So he took out his Canon SX210 and took what turned out to be his last picture of the day.
