  • While taking a leisurely walk along trails at Fullersburg Woods in Oak Brook, I noticed an interesting composition of a pair of Canada geese along the banks of Salt Creek. In an apparent optical illusion, my mind began to do a double take for a few seconds regarding the reflection. Then, the pair moved in the water and swam away. The photo has a relaxing, pictorial feel, which is enhanced by a recent snowstorm. This photo was published in the Perspective column in the print edtion.
