  • This was taken in my back yard. I have been living on the Fox River in Carpentersville for about 6 years now, and these eagles roost out here just outside my window sometimes. I was recently on the news program Chicago Tonight, on Channel 11 featuring the eagles out here. I took this shot late in the afternoon, with the sun just about to set.

  • This photo was taken in Tetons National Park Wyoming of Mount Moran. We arrived well before sunrise but found that there were numerous photographers already set up. I managed to find a spot (none were bad), set up my tripod and started shooting. In the silence of the morning all that could be heard was the click, click of shutters. After I had taken as many photos as I wanted, I pulled back behind all the photographers and was struck by the image of the now lit up Mt Moran and the row of photographers in silhouette.

  • I was amazed how beautiful the Arboretum was despite the bare tree branches. They congregated gracefully in groups here and there, like a bunch of ladies socializing after an afternoon tea party.
